Detroit's Motown piano restored

By Susan Whitall, The Detroit News

APRIL 1, 2013 — A piano with a rich history in Detroit music is finally back home, at the Motown Historical Museum. The nine-foot 1877 Steinway grand piano that sat for years in Motown Studio B on Davison was returned to Hitsville Monday and reassembled in Studio A by Steinway technicians, after a complete restoration at the company's factory in New York. Former Beatle Paul McCartney helped fund the restoration.

    Former Detroiters are coming to visit us in August. We're going to take them to Hitsville USA. Hope to hear someone play the piano then.
