“Bring your friends and loved ones to experience a magical afternoon of piano music. The Jack London Piano Club will present a special concert with a program designed for everyone. Take a break from the holiday rush to treat yourself to a Sunday afternoon of beautiful music played on Charmian London’s 1901 Steinway baby grand piano located on the second floor of the House of Happy Walls museum.
Even before she met Jack London, Charmian was an accomplished pianist. She initially purchased the 1901 Steinway on an installment plan. After receiving a hefty sum from his publisher, Jack gave Charmian $500 to finish payment and bring the piano to the ranch, where it became the center of entertainment for the London’s many guests.
Refreshments will be served outdoors under the portico at intermission, weather permitting.”
