Department of Music stages public sale of pianos and other instruments

Barely used and new pianos, guitars and violins will be for sale to UC Berkeley’s faculty and staff as well as the public Aug. 13-16 at the Department of Music’s Hertz Auditorium.

The instruments by makers such as Pramberger, Seiler, Knabe, Peavey, Steinway & Sons and others are provided for sale by the Rockley Family Foundation, which has supplied the department with new, first-class pianos for free for the past year.
