Indiana Wesleyan University announces the Eighth Annual Piano Pedagogy Conference scheduled for April 13-14, 2012. The conference features Franz Mohr and Dr. Sam Holland. Mohr is former chief concert technician for Steinway & Sons, who was critically important to many of the greatest of the pianists of our time. As the close colleague of legendary musicians such as Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubinstein, Glenn Gould, Rudolf Serkin and many others, Mohr attended to their Steinway instruments, making delicate adjustments that affect tone, balance, and other characteristics of sound. Born in Duren, Germany on September 27, 1927, Mohr studied music at the Musikhochschule in Cologne and the Academy of Music in Detmold, Germany. He joined Steinway & Sons in New York City in 1962 and retired in 1992. He is presently an active advisor and consultant to Steinway & Sons. Sponsored by Meridian Music Company of Carmel, Indiana
