More and more I think of Texas as just that. I'm sure it's largely a consequence of Cliburn and company, but it seems to be on the most interesting places of pianophiles. Just ask the folks at SMU:
" Jeanne Roach Johnson, a Dallas private investor and Southern Methodist University business school graduate, has given $1 million to the piano program at SMU's Meadows School of the Arts. " Link
Very nice indeed.
