Sonatina under renovations

I simply don’t have time to write a meaningful post so I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Many things are happening at 5 Catamount Lane in preparation for the 2014 season of Sonata Piano Camp and Summer Sonatina International Piano Camp at

We are replacing all the rugs downstairs in rooms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5A, 6 and 9 (see pictures of all of these rooms here.

We are redoing the wood floors in every room and closet upstairs – rooms 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 28, 33, and 34. Again, continue to see the pictures from the link, above.

We removed the old curtains and are putting up new ones, not as dark as in the past.

We’ve put in a few more piano lamps.

And, finally, a special gift for all of you pianists, 10 single artist benches and 2 double ones:

A little more padding for all your long practice hours!

Happy PianoDays to all!

    So ambitious! I’m always amazed by your continuous efforts to improve and innovation. Looking forward to seeing it all in 2014.

      Thanks, Holly! It’s quite a push to try and get this all done in a short window of time. I’m hoping everyone is happy to have softer cushioning for your tushies!

  2. What a lot of work! I can’t wait to see the results later this winter. (But elsewhere you said the benches are higher….I hope they still adjust down to my favored Gouldian depths πŸ™‚

    • pianessa says:

      They adjust in both directions! The rugs were just finished today. Wood floors are 2/3 of the way done. Kawai grand from room 3 is going to be in room 9, a Steinway M will be in its place in room 3 and a new practice room will be set up in room 5 (Andrea’s former office) with the other Steinway M. Andrea’s office is now on porch 19 with the elliptical and treadmill. She’s so happy!
