Nordstrom Ditching In-Store Piano Players
Well this is no way to start our week! News came in today from LA Times’ Culture Monster that high-end department store Nordstrom is cutting back on its in-store piano players. For years, anyone who shopped Nordstrom’s was treated to live performances from traditional pianists who would often play jazz, classical and Broadway tunes…even pop. It was always a real treat for shoppers but according to a Nordstrom spokesman, the customers today prefer more contemporary, recorded music. Say it ain’t so!! Who are these people — we want to meet you
Anyway, the good news is they aren’t completely eliminating pianos from all the stores and some will still have pianists for special occasions. Read the full story here.
