Hollywood Piano’s invitation-only reception on Thursday, June 21 will feature many well known invitees from the worlds of music, television and politics. “At Hollywood Piano we’re not resting on our laurels. We plan to head into the next 90 years as the industry leader we’ve been for the last 90 years by continuing to expand, innovate and change with the times,“ said Glenn Treibitz, President/CEO of Hollywood Piano.
The evening will also feature the presentation of the first two “Piano Hero” awards.

This year the awards will be presented to Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles, and the legendary Stevie Wonder, singer, songwriter and producer.
