The keys of half a century

. May 29, 2012.

King’s Keyboard House in Ann Arbor sells everything “piano,” from nine-foot grands to Shostakovich sheet music. (And if you don’t know who Shostakovich is, the eager staff sure does.) Since 1961, when Richard King focused his passion into starting his own piano company, they have been avid supporters of local music education, supplying teachers, students, and performers with instruments and lessons. “We’re a rich serving community,” says owner Jim King, Richard’s son, who runs the shop with his sister Julie. They recently expanded the business, adding sheet music to their ever-increasing inventory this past December. June 2-5 celebrate their 50th anniversary with a tent sale and entertainment by local pianists. King’s Keyboard House, at 2363 E Stadium Blvd. 734-663-3381.
