Great Musicians Graced the Stage
The M.S. Steinert & Sons store was located in a part of the theater district known as “piano row,” which meant that the area was frequented by members of Boston’s musical elite. As Alexander Steinert had hoped, the concert hall conveniently brought these coveted customers through the store on a regular basis. By the early 1910s, Steinert Hall had established a reputation for being a mecca for Boston-area musicians. Many great performers graced the stage of Steinert Hall, including Josef Hofmann, Fritz Kreisler, and Harold Bauer.
For almost 50 years, Steinert Hall was a proud addition to the cultural vibe of Boston. And then, tragedy struck.
