GL Pianos Gives Back - here are a few photos and “authentic” Letters of Thanks.
Here are 2 photos taken by Dr. Robert Frelly; Founder and Artistic Director/Conductor of the Southern California Youth Philharmonic.
One photo shows the Baldwin L Grand Piano (which I donated), with several younger students and the other is the Baldwin being played (in a rehearsal), with the cello choir. I restored the top end of this piano with new strings, tuning pins, new pin block, damper felts, refinished soundboard, reguilded frame, replated hardware, etc. I also reconditioned the action and tuned it to A440 Concert Pitch.
Dr. Frelly and his associates were thrilled they were getting this grand piano and said it was going to be used as their main piano in the music conservatory and in concerts on their main stage.

Letter of Thanks
Wendie Malick, Tony Shalhoub, Tim Allen and Barry Neikrug (who was the piano player on the stage), all starred in one of the funniest theatre productions called ‘Out Clause’ written by Joe Cacaci.
The performance (at the Coronet Theatre), was for one night only and the cast and myself donated our time and services with the proceeds from the show going to the National Veterans Foundation.

During the summer of 2009, my wife & I were happy to meet the museum officials when we were invited to the famous Liberace Foundation & Museum in Las Vegas.
Being given a complimentary tour, we were able to appreciate and view Liberace’s extensive piano collection up close. I was then invited by the museum director to play on Liberace’s favorite pianos. It was an honor for me to play and experience his custom made Baldwin grand pianos.
Many thanks go out to Jack Rappaport - president, Tanya Combs - museum director, Howard Shapiro - staff member, Michael Sharon - CFO, and concert pianist Philip Fortenberry for all of their hospitality!
We had a great day!
