Steinways are often referred to as the Rolls Royce of pianos. 
 
The company has a more than 150 year old history that began on Varrick Street in Manhattan’s West Village. Steinway and Sons was founded by a German immigrant in 1853.
 
Today, Steinway and Sons has two factories. One is in Hamburg, Germany. The other is in Queens, New York. 
 
Our guest this week is Anthony Gilroy, Senior Director of Marketing and Communication for Steinway & Sons in the Americas.
