Classic Pianos Named 'Bösendorfer Dealer of the Year' by Yamaha
ANAHEIM, Calif. (January 16, 2020) — Classic Pianos has been named "Bösendorfer Dealer of the Year" by Yamaha Corporation of America, the world's largest musical instrument manufacturer.
The award was presented to the piano retailer at the 2020 NAMM music products convention held recently in Anaheim, California. Yamaha recognized Classic Pianos with the award for its sales and marketing success with Bösendorfer pianos.
Bösendorfer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation and the world's oldest premium piano manufacturer. Built in Austria, Bösendorfer instruments are known for combining unique hand-crafted piano designs with their unmistakable sound, true to the rich culture of Viennese instruments.
"Classic Pianos and the Unis family epitomize what makes a great piano retailer," said Travis Mitchell, director, piano channel sales of Yamaha Corporation of America. "They are active in their community, they are dedicated supporters of the arts, and they provide world-class customer service and support. Combine that with skilled and passionate employees who are well trained and love their craft, and you have a great recipe for success."
With a family history of repairing pianos and a passion for the craft, Maurice Unis opened Moe's Pianos in the mid-70s, which quickly became Portland's most recognized name in piano sales and service. In 2001, Maurice opened Classic Pianos with his oldest son, Brian. Since then, all three of the Unis sons have become involved with the business and have helped expand Classic Pianos to seven states including locations in Portland, Oregon; Bellevue, Washington; Las Vegas, Nevada; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Denver, Colorado; Boston, Massachusetts; and Anchorage, Alaska.
