Talk about a rising star! Pianist Ellen Pavliska did not begin piano lessons until she was 11 years old. Five years later, she was on stage with the San Antonio Symphony. Now 22, Pavliska is a student at the University of North Texas, where she has continued her studies and growth as a classical pianist.

Steinway Hall, the main showroom for Steinway & Sons pianos, will be moving to a new location, leaving its home of almost 90 years on 57th Street near Carnegie Hall.
