TONIGHT AT 7:00, Second Hand Prose Books will be hosting a talk by the co-founder of the Frederick Collection of Period Grand Pianos in Ashburnham ( http://frederickcollection.org ).

Who knew that there is a world-class collection of antique pianos in north central Massachusetts? The Collection hosts 24 pianos from 1795 to 1928, with a dozen more in the work of repair and restoration. All of them are playable, and regularly played, in tours of the collection and in public concerts. There is no comparable collection of period, playing grand pianos in the United States.

Patricia Frederick, co-founder of the Frederick Collection, will speak at Second Hand Prose Books on Tuesday April 22nd at 7:00 pm. Come hear about the pianos, the work of the Historical Piano Study Center, and the composers from Hayden through the Romantics to Debussey and Ravel who knew instruments like these and composed for their particular tonal qualities.

For more information please visit http://secondhandprosebooks.com or call 978-448-BOOK (-2665).
