BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Students at one college in the Lehigh Valley will now be able to tickle the ivories, 10 times over.

Moravian College in Bethlehem is the proud owner of 10 new Steinway pianos. They were delivered Wednesday, and the school's marching band was on hand to celebrate the occasion.

The pianos were a gift from the estate of late student Betty Moore, and the donation earns Moravian the designation of an "all- Steinway School." That distinction is held by fewer than 125 colleges and universities worldwide.

The pianos will be put to good use. All of Moravian's music majors are required to play the piano.
