Today was a GRAND experience in more ways than one – 20 grands – in downtown Nashua, NH.
A GRAND isn’t worth $1,000 when it’s referring to a baby grand, which is like $10,000 and up depending on the maker.Darrell’s Music Hall on Main Street features 20 baby grand pianos on display in its showroom. Adam Darrell, grandson of the store’s founder, told me that the cost of a grand piano depends on the maker. Averaging $10,000 per piano (although many cost more) brings the total of the storefront display closer to $250,000 – lots of GRANDS indeed.These are beautifully crafted instruments, whose workmanship shows throughout, from interior strings, to pedals and keyboards .Darrell’s Music Hall is a family-owned and operated business. Adam’s grandfather, Kenneth Darrell, was a singer who decided that instead of venturing into that part of the music industry, to approach music another way. He founded the music hall to establish a solid foundation for his growing family.
The business that Darrell started has been a fixture in downtown Nashua, NH since 1969. It’s all about pianos with a large selection of new and used baby grand pianos, and other styles, including player pianos and digital models. Services include maintenance, repairs, accessories, music lessons, studio rentals.
Where there’s pianos, there’s sheet music – classics to show tunes.
