Hall Piano Company and the Steinway Society of New Orleans are pleased to announce a new member of the Steinway & Sons and Hall Piano Company Family.  Congratulations are in order for members of Memorial Baptist Church, Pastor  Jackie Gestes and Minister of Music Lynn Johnston after taking delivery of a new Steinway Designed Essex EGP-183 in Walnut Satin Finish, and two Boston UP118 upright pianos for classroom and choir rehearsal room use. The Steinway Society of New Orleans was proud to participate in the acquisition process and contributed $1,189 towards the purchase price of the piano.

After Hurricane Katrina caused extensive damage to the sanctuary and other facilities, Pastor Wiggins and his family joined Rio Vista Baptist Church as head pastor and minister of music in October of 2005 to help rebuild the church and ministry.

The addition of the Steinway designed Boston grand piano to their house of worship is a bold proclamation of Rio Vista Baptist Church’s commitment to excellence in every aspect of their ministry as well as a finishing touch to their rebuilding project post-Katrina.

Hall Piano Company welcomes you to our family… again, congratulations!!
