Tuning the Oliver Mansion’s Piano


Tuning the Steinway piano in the Oliver Mansion’s Music Room is Steve Hicks (pictured), who is with Wesco Piano Service. When the historic house was first built in 1895-96, this area was a terrace. Within three years after the Oliver family moved in, they asked the home’s architect, Charles Alonzo Rich, to design the new addition. Completed in 1899, the Music Room features an ornamental plaster frieze on three sides of the room. It is copied from the Cantoria by Luca della Robbia. Thanks to the talents of Gary Kowalski, who volunteers his time on Friday afternoons, beautiful piano music is heard regularly in the Oliver Mansion.
