Long Island City, NY (July 9, 2012) — Steinway & Sons is proud to announce the addition of Broussard’s Piano Gallery and Academy of Music to its exclusive family of Steinway-authorized dealers. Broussard’s, headquartered in Mobile, Alabama, will join an elite group of hand-selected dealers who bring the world’s finest pianos to artists, students and institutions around the globe.
Broussard’s will handle sales and service of Steinway pianos—from majestic concert grands to traditional uprights.

The addition of The Family of Steinway-Designed Pianos to Broussard’s offerings marks a new era for a business known throughout the region for its expertise in piano sales and service.
“Our business has been in the family since my grandparents founded it in 1945. We are absolutely honored and thrilled that Steinway has asked us to be an authorized dealer,” said Christy Broussard Myers, Gallery Manager. “This is a very prestigious designation. My grandparents, my father and I have worked very hard to build our business, and this partnership is tremendously meaningful to us. We’re proud to bring American-made Steinway pianos to our customers.”
