Calling all Piano Lovers! Prized Antique Piano Collection isn't Far

 Thursday, August 17, 2017

The small town of Ashburnham in north/central Massachussetts is the home of one of the most prized collections of antique grand pianos in the world. Michael and Patricia Frederick have lovingly gathered and restored an amazing array of gorgeous instruments, each one in mint playing condition. Housed in a historic former library building, the collection is open to the public on Thursdays and Saturdays, or by appointment.

The Frederick’s are endlessly knowledgeable about piano history, composers, and performers. They will personally escort you through the collection – and demonstrate each instrument! Ashburnham is close to a number of state parks, including Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire, so a visit to the area makes a nice family trip. Check it out at
