Music Department to Conduct Annual Piano Sale
During the past academic year, the Department of Music has had access to first-class standard and digital pianos through an association with the Rockley Family Foundation.
To perpetuate this program, these instruments, along with those provided other institutions, will be sold Friday through Sunday, Aug. 7 - 9, at the Robinson Hall for the Performing Arts. Individuals can schedule appointments to attend a "pre-sale" on Friday and Saturday by calling 704-687-1999; a final day sale will be from 12:00 - 5:00 PM, Sunday.
A large selection of grand, baby grand, digital player grand and digital pianos will be available from a number of manufacturers, including Steinway and Sons, Yamaha, Kawai, Cable Nelson, Story and Clark, Pearl River, Disklavier and Clavinova. Most instruments are less than a year old and are tuned and ready to go and include a full factory warranty. Click here for additional information about the sale.
Industry Recognition for Engineering Alumnus
Manufacturing Engineering magazine has named Lee College of Engineering alumnus Chris Tyler as one of its "30 under 30" industry professionals who has demonstrated "exceptional talent and leadership in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, which are the essential underpinnings of manufacturing."
Tyler, who earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University in May, accepted a position with Boeing in St. Louis to continue his research on difficult-to-machine materials, according to the article.
The magazine pointed out that Tyler’s research into the creation of a database that contains ideal conditions for milling and turning based upon type of material, tool geometry and tool wear has earned high praise in the manufacturing industry.
