All rehearsal and performance pianos located in the conference hotels have been graciously donated by Steinway & Sons–the official piano of CMS Conferences.
Eldorado Grand Ballroom A
A grand piano has been arranged for this room. Please be reminded this is not an ideal concert acoustic. A wooden dance floor will be laid in the presentation area to mitigate the effects of carpeting. The piano must remain on the dance floor and any movement of the instrument must be coordinated through the CMS staff.
Eldorado De Vargas, Zia C, & Hilton Chapel
Upright pianos will be found in all three of these practice rooms. Please refer to the information regarding practice rooms for more information.
Hilton Mesa Ballroom A, Mesa Ballroom C, Pecos, & Eldorado Chapel
No keyboard instruments will be provided by CMS for presentations in these rooms.
Note regarding performances taking place at St. Francis Auditorium
A Falcone grand piano which belongs to the venue will be available for use by CMS and NACWPI presenters/performers. CMS has arranged for tuning sessions prior to and during the conference.
