WOW! The presentation given by Nick Gravagne this past Saturday was simply AWESOME! We had 28 attendees! Thanks to everyone who
attended, especially those who traveled some distance to see Nick do his thing. I hope you enjoyed the presentation and came away knowing more about grand piano action analysis and sound boards then when you
went in. I know it was a long day, but it was a real learning experience, don't you think? Did any attendees take any photos of or during the presentation Saturday? Please send me anything you took so I can
get it posted in our AUSTIN PTG website.
We want to express out thanks to UT's Butler School of Music for allowing us to have the presentation in the Music Building,
with a special thanks to Charles Ball, Head of Piano Technical Services at The Butler School of Music for allowing us to use pianos, grand piano actions, tools, and UT's action models. Thanks to Joe Dunn for
collecting fees and distributing name tags. Lets give Steve Walthall a big, full-bellied thank you for bringing such a great morning spread with coffee, and a great nosh!
Our November meeting will be geared towards Associate members who wish to become RPT's. Those associate members who are
interested, PLEASE email me and let me know what areas of piano repair or tuning you could use some help with. I already have a few RPT's who have offered their time for this meeting. This is going to be in
a few weeks, so we have to get cracking on this!
I hope you're enjoying this cooler, wetter weather,
PTG, Austin Chapter
