Gist Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Gist Piano Center is 40 years old and, in celebration of this landmark anniversary, we have organized activities all across the state of Kentucky.

"This is an important year for us," said John Gist. "Kentucky has changed quite a bit since my dad opened the business in 1971 and we're excited to be in a position of growth - despite a tornado, an electrical fire, the Watterson expansion and the worst economy our business has ever seen. After 40 years, we're still Kentucky's trusted piano hub and we have a lot to celebrate."

Our year-long Anniversary celebration will begin with a new video series on The Gist YouTube Channel. The new series, called "A History of Service" will feature rare interviews from Ron Gist and a number of Kentucky icons.

"We believe that the key to our success over the years has been our partnerships with local teachers, musicians and iconic organizations such as The Kentucky Center, The Lexington Philharmonic and The University of Louisville," said Gist. "We want to acknowledge the role our relationship with these folks played in shaping our business model."

Stay tuned for a number of exciting 40th Anniversary events in 2012!

Lexington Store Expansion
For those of you packed into our Lexington facility for Halloweekend this year, this next announcement will be welcome news: Gist Piano Center Lexington is expanding!

In response to the tremendous support from our PIE teachers and their families, Gist Piano Center is proud to announce that we will more than double the size of our Lexington facility this winter. The new, state-of-the-art facility will feature the following upgrades:
Over the years we have emerged as the last local, family-owned, full-service piano house in the state. To meet Kentucky's growing need, we're maintaining our commitment to fine acoustic pianos like Steinway & Sons while expanding into print music, education and digital technologies.

Work has already begun on the new space. Gist Piano Center Lexington will remain open during the expansion. The new Gist Piano Center Lexington is scheduled to open February 1.
