Soft classical music now plays in the patient care tower rotunda at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, thanks to a baby grand-style player piano donated by Curtis D. and Sheila Robinson.

The Robinsons were inspired to give the piano to St. Francis because, when visiting Curtis Robinson’s mother and grandmother at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport, they always liked the sense of peace and tranquility that hearing a piano there brought to them.

Mr. Robinson is a board member at St. Francis Hospital.

The Robinsons purchased the computerized player piano from Shawn’s Pianos in West Hartford. (Photo submitted)
