School buys piano, thanks to Polaris
Forest Lake Area High School received a $4,800 grant from Polaris Industries Inc. to purchase a Yamaha piano for the school’s choir room.
The piano, a slightly used Yamaha C3 grand piano, is equipped with computer software that can record notes, making it useful for instruction. It previously had been used in the “music theory room” at the University of Minnesota, according to a school district news release.
The school’s previous piano had exceeded its 40-year life span and required increasing amounts of money to fix, the district said.
