Our church, Saugatuck Congregational, had a devastating fire in which we lost two Steinways. Sara Faust was one of people who came to assess the damage to our pianos. They were a total loss. As we began our search for a new Steinway for our Sanctuary, Faust was one of the places in which we went to see/hear/ play some Steinways. Sara took us for a tour of the factory, explained the process of rebuilding pianos and listened intently as to what we were looking for in a piano. As soon as I began playing the 1908 Steinway Model A I knew we had found what we were looking for. It had a soul like no other. The committee members got goose bumps and tears formed in their eyes. This piano was going to have a home in Westport, CT. I have been playing and trying out Steinways since I was twelve years old. This makes the top three I have ever played! A beautiful instrument rebuilt with such care. I cannot wait for it to move into our new Sanctuary this December. Thank you, Sara! You and your entire team, of which I enjoyed meeting and talking with, have outdone themselves with this instrument. Thank you from all of us at Saugatuck Church, UCC in Westport, CT.
