STEINWAY & SONS PIANO
We are very excited to announce that the Smith Foundation is now the proud owner of a beautiful Steinway Piano. The piano is a gift from Kathryn Allison in memory of her mother Barbara and is 100 years old!
"The donation of the Steinway piano is in memory of my mother, Barbara Allison. She trained as an opera singer, but when she became a single parent, she went back to school to become a teacher. She met Gordon Smith when she took his Fine Arts Teaching Methods course at UBC. They became great pals and he encouraged her to nurture every child’s creativity, not just the prodigies. Gordon Smith inspired my mother’s teaching practice, and made it possible for me to paint murals all over my bedroom walls. She relented, only because he approved!"
