Professor Steve Chapman CBE, Vice Chancellor of Edith Cowan University, will be hosting an exclusive private cocktail event for our donors, patrons, and supporters to farewell the First Fleet piano as it commences its journey towards restoration.
The restoration and replication of the First Fleet piano supports our vision to lead the world in historical keyboard instrument research and teaching. Our preeminent collection of rare and important pianos will position ECU and WAAPA as a hub for collaboration and innovation around piano performance, education, conservation, restoration and maintenance.
Our ambitious goal is driven by individual passion, guided by local expertise, and made possible through the generous support of donors.
