The Cartee Piano Chamber Concert with Boise Philharmonic
March 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm MST
The incredible 1878 Cartee Weber Grand Piano was the first of its kind to the Idaho Territory. People deemed the Weber piano the top instrument of its day. In the spring of 2014 Paul Schiller and Walt Lee approached the Idaho State Historical Society about restoring the Weber Grand Piano. Schiller, along with the support of many community music lovers, began a lengthy restoration process to reestablish its luscious sound. It sounds absolutely beautiful in the Idaho Room at the Idaho State Museum. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this special piece of Idaho history played by Boise Phil’s Del Parkinson (principal piano). Brian Vance (principal horn), Brendan Shea (concertmaster), and Geoffrey Hill (principal second violin).
