Note By Note: The Making of Steinway L1037
Enjoy a free screening of this award-winning documentary following the step-by-step process of making a concert grand piano. The most thoroughly handcrafted instrument in the world, Steinway pianos are as unique and full of personality as the world-class musicians who play them. But their makers are a dying breed. Explore their world during the year-long journey from forest floor to concert hall.

Joe has been the executive and artistic director of the Santa Fe Concert Association since 2008, and music director and principal conductor of the Fort Worth Opera since 2002. Having an extensive background in opera, he has served as artistic director and conductor at major companies around the country and the world. Joe is also an active chamber music pianist with engagements in the US and abroad.
