“ONE OF THE CITY’S BEST VENUES”
- Our Recital Hall is popular with piano teachers and musical groups where a top-quality piano is central to performance. A concert-level grand piano is on stage at all times. On special request we often arrange two grands on the same stage. Professional uprights and Clavinova digital pianos, on the floor for group performance or master classes, are also available.
- Maurice (“Moe”) and Cathy Traylor Unis are underwriters for “Classics & Croissants,” a series of concerts and master classes presented by internationally renowned pianists. Recent artists have included Eric Himy and Sara Davis Buechner—both graduates of the Juilliard School of Music and praised in major newspapers and music publications including The New York Times.
- Classic Pianos has also partnered with KMHD, hosting a series of concerts entitled “George Fendel Presents.” Artists have included Alan Broadbent, Rebecca Kilgore, Dave Frishberg, Dan Barrett, and many others. Additionally, Classic Pianos has co-sponsored concerts with Portland Jazz through a series of special venues in the Recital Hall.
- The Recital Hall has been engineered for ideal sound and recording properties. It is fully air-conditioned, with seating for 100 guests in comfortably padded chairs.
Gino Vannelli recently recorded a song in our Recital Hall as a fund-raising effort for a local young soldier, Jeff Lucas. For more information or to view the recording.

“Thank you, Classic Pianos for your hospitality during my practice sessions in your recital hall for my concert and master class for the Portland Piano International Festival. I was impressed by your state-of-the-art facilities, as well as by the preparation of your superb pianos, and I found your staff to be both knowledgeable and gracious. Bravo!”
