04 Nov Varvara Tarasova Visits Hanna Pianos
We were delighted to welcome professional concert pianist and published recording artist Varavara Tarasova to Hanna Pianos this weekend.
After the showroom was closed for the day Varvara was kind enough to play for us on our own A. Hanna & Sons branded acoustic upright piano!
