Right around the corner from Rittenhouse Square, Jacobs Music Company is hosting a free, eight-hour marathon of live, jazz piano music on Friday, June 21st, from 11 am to 7 pm. The Philadelphia Jazz Project has lined up ten master pianists from our area who will perform throughout the day at the Jacobs Music store at 1718 Chestnut Street. WRTI is proud to be a media sponsor for JAZZ AT JACOBS - one of many programs taking place on Make Music Philly Day. Don't miss it!
This week, we're on location at Jacobs Music in Philadelphia where we visited its celebrity resident - the Horowitz Steinway CD 503 piano. Legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz owned and played only this piano during his lifetime, and it is now on tour throughout the United States as a special envoy for the Steinway company.
