Motown's 1877 Steinway piano saved by Paul McCartney expected to be in Detroit 'soon,' museum CEO says

A damaged 1877 Steinway grand piano used by Motown artists during the record label's glory days that was restored thanks to help from Paul McCartney is expected to head home to Detroit "soon," Motown Museum CEO Allen Rawls said.
Rawls gave the update Wednesday morning during an interview with WJBK-TV (FOX 2) but didn't give a specific date when it will be available for public viewing at the Motown Museum at 2648 W. Grand Blvd.
"The piano will come back here soon," Rawls said. "We want to give it a proper homecoming."
A fundraiser was held in New York last fall to help raise money for the restoration of the damaged Steinway.
The Associated Press reported the piano is made of 9-ft Victorian rosewood and will go back on display at the Motown Museum's famed Studio A.
The museum unveiled a new exhibit this month that highlights the "Grit, Glamor and Glory" of Motown's female groups including The Vandellas, The Superemes, The Marvelettes, The Andantes and others.
Hours for the museum are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and children.
