Dr. Kenneth (Ken) Mays g60 has had a long, distinguished career as a pianist and administrator. After he retired after a distinguished career at The Masters College. He returned to the Fort Wayne Alumni Center to create a special event which started when he was a student at Fort Wayne Bible College. His desire was to bring glory to God, giving tribute to Drs. René Frank and Ira Gerig, his mentors while at the college.
The Alumni Center was the recipient of a Steinway Model B which originally was in Studio 1, Founders, then was sent back to the Steinway factory, completely rebuilt. It came back to the campus and was dedicated by Dr. Mays. When the campus closed, the piano was then moved to the Alumni Center where this recording was made.
