Back in January of this year, Saint Agnes Church at 433 Sackett Street in Carroll Gardens ran a highly successful crowd funding campaign to restore its long neglected Concert Grand Piano.
The magnificent instrument was built in 1891 by the Wissner Piano Company on Atlantic Avenue.
Over the past few months, Brooklyn’s master piano restorer, Brian Whiton has worked on the Wissner and it is now ready to be played once again. To celebrate, Saint  Agnes is hosting a celebratory concert this Saturday, June 6th at 7pm.
A reception will be held immediately after the concert. It is absolutely free and every one is invited. No tickets needed.
See you there?
