True. The locations seem unlikely; it's odd.

I hope they don't just exibit the piano, like...

"hey, here is an extrodinary piano previously owned by blah blah blah...however, you don't get to hear it, touch it...just watch it from a distance, would ya? "

4 hrs to Dallas a month before my finals...probably not

Oh, I'll be playing it, taking pictures of it, and recording it. :P

Otherwise, I probably wouldn't be going. ;)

I got to play it down in Boca for a concert, but they had completely re-done the action, and I was overall kinda disappointed with it. But of course, was quite a thrill nonetheless.
