LOUISVILLE, Colo. (KDVR) — A pianist and piano teacher lost her beloved piano in the Marshall Fire that destroyed more than a thousand houses in Louisville, Superior and unincorporated Boulder County.
Stella Pradeau is a collaborative pianist and piano teacher. Like many residents of Louisville and Superior, her family lost their home in the fire.
“The house has been destroyed. I haven’t been back, I’m not ready,” Pradeau said.
In their house was a Steinway 7-foot grand piano, given to Pradeau by her parents years ago.
“It was a gift from my parents, first-generation graduates,” she adds.
The piano was originally purchased for $35,000. Pradeau says it would now cost nearly $100,000 to replace it. For years she has taught piano to countless students. Despite the loss, the show continues, she says.
“The music won’t stop,” she said.
The family has a GoFundMe to help replace the musical instrument.
