The Chapel is located on Central Avenue in Demorest and is adjacent to the $10.1 million Conservatory of Music, which houses 27 Steinway pianos. The hand-crafted instruments, widely considered the finest in the world, are synonymous with prestige and quality.
More than 200 students – about 15 percent of Piedmont’s undergraduate population – participate in music academic programs, ensembles, and performances. The Conservatory of Music is an All-Steinway School.
