The NAC owns 13 pianos, including seven grand pianos of various sizes and six uprights. Visiting concert artists have the choice of using one of our three Steinway concert grands, two of which were built in Hamburg and one in New York. The Hamburg Steinway, purchased in 2008, is currently played the most. Each week Don Côté from Piano Works comes to tune pianos needed for upcoming performances. Depending on the rehearsal and performance schedule, a concert piano may be tuned as many as three times in a single day.
