JACKSONVILLE UNIVERSITY BECOMES EPIC
Rancho Dominguez, CA • August, 2011 – Kawai America Corporation proudly announces the addition of Jacksonville University to its Elite Performing Instrument Collection (EPIC) program, also known as The EPIC Partnership. The university recently acquired 31 Kawai and Shigeru Kawai pianos as part of the revitalization of its music department.
“Becoming a Kawai EPIC Institution sends a message to the students, faculty and alumni of Jacksonville University that we take music very seriously,” stated Dr. Robert Tudor, Chair of the Department of Music. “Replacing a large portion of our pianos tells current students that we are investing in them. It lets potential students know that this institution is very serious about our programs. We are expecting an increase in instrumental applications next year, in large part, due to the investment we’ve made in Kawai and Shigeru Kawai pianos.”
Exceptional tone, touch and consistency have made Kawai pianos a preferred choice of professional pianists and music educators for generations. The elite Shigeru Kawai grand pianos are acclaimed worldwide for their quintessential tone and performance. Kawai’s prestigious EPIC program is made possible by the Shigeru Kawai Endowment.
