Pittsburgh Opera to host 12th Annual Piano Sale August 22-25


Pittsburgh Opera will be hosting a piano sale at its headquarters at 2425 Liberty Ave. in the Strip District from Thursday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 25th. Over 100 pianos will be available. 

Every year, Pittsburgh Opera receives a free loan of new pianos from Solich Piano for rehearsal, coaching, and performance needs. To support this ongoing loan program, these and other fine pianos are offered for sale after each season. All pianos are sold at institutional prices not normally available in retail stores.

All patrons who come in for the sale can enter a drawing to win a free pair of season tickets to Pittsburgh Opera’s 81st anniversary season, which includes Mozart’s irresistible Don Giovanni, the lush magic realism of Florencia en el Amazonas, Bizet's fiery Carmen and Bellini's bel canto masterpiece Norma.

In addition to the gently-used pianos which have been loaned to Pittsburgh Opera, the sale will include a wide range of brand-new Yamaha grands, uprights, digitals, hybrids, and Disklavier player pianos, as well as other used pianos being sold at significant discounts. Pianos include top-quality brands such as Yamaha, Kawai, Clavinova, Bösendorfer, Seiler and others. All of the pianos - new and loaned - come with manufacturer warranties and technical services.

Patrons can make an appointment for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, August 22, 23, or 24 online at or by calling 412-206-5582. No appointments are needed for the public sale day of Sunday, August 25, from 12PM – 5PM.
