The city's "living room" may soon come complete with a baby grand piano if a 13-year-old Provo boy has his way.
Tannin Fuja, a student at Dixon Junior High School, is working to raise enough money to buy the piano for the Provo Civic Center, the site for various programs and concerts.A final effort to raise funds will be made at a benefit concert at 7:30 p.m. May 3 in the Provo Tabernacle. Tickets are $4 and can be purchased at the door.
Fuja, a soprano soloist, will perform, along with O'Neal Miner and the Miner Music Co., Lee and Linda Wakefield of the BYU Ballroom Dance Team and a number of other artists from the area.
Fuja has been working since last August to raise the money for his Eagle Scout project. His goal is to have the piano in the civic center by June.
Fuja has already raised about three-fourths of the money by performing other concerts and by placing donation cans in grocery stores and getting donations from local businesses.
He estimates that the piano will cost $5,000 to $6,000.
