Dr. Erin Holmes, Black Hills State University director of institutional research,
recently donated a Yamaha piano to the music department.
Dr. Symeon Waseen, BHSU assistant professor of music, said Holmes’ piano donation came at a perfect time. The music department had been leasing two pianos and had to recently return both.
“We were just wondering what we were going to do,” Waseen said. The piano has already been put to use with many students using it to practice on their own as well as for group rehearsals, he said. Waseen noted that the music department always appreciates gifts of this type and that a need remains for additional pianos and other equipment.
Holmes has accepted a position as the Associate Vice Provost for Institutional Research at the University of Alaska at Anchorage.
