Hartt Persistence Keeps Piano Students Playing Through the Pandemic
Former UHart Regent Tony Falcetti, who is also former chair of the Julius Hartt Musical Foundation, Inc. Board of Trustees and is owner of Falcetti Pianos, stepped in to help. He had a team help The Hartt School move 17 pianos from the Fuller Music Center, as well as four pianos from his facility in Springfield, Mass, into locations where the piano students can practice remotely and safely during this time.

It was a total team effort, and I wish I could share all of the comments that I have received from the students. They have repeatedly expressed their gratitude to the school and the University for helping them during this very difficult time.”
