Hope Swann, host of Steinway Piano Gallery Seattle/Bellevue presents: Music for your Life, takes her love of classical music and brings that passion to Alternative Talk 1150’s airwaves every Monday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. As the General Manager for Steinway & Sons Seattle/Bellevue, Hope is uniquely qualified to help listeners to the station kick off each week on a high note.
Hope weaves music, teaching, and interesting music topics into each week’s show. In short, this program is for musicians and music lovers alike!
Extraordinary music dovetails to her extraordinary life during this weekly one-hour show. Hope was born surrounded by the factories of Columbus, Ohio, had her formative years among the vineyards of Northern California, and then worked her way to New York City. From there she headed to the beauty and diverse culture of the Pacific Northwest.
Her interest in music has always been a big part of her life.
“My DNA is filled with the richness of many races and cultures, and much like a Steinway, there is still music to be discovered. I am a colorful mixture of discovery, inspiration, and excitement about what is to come from the next generation of virtuosos,” she said.
Co-host of the program is Connie Lin, who is a representative for Steinway and Sons Gallery of Bellevue. She too brings a great level of expertise to the program and the clients of Steinway. Off air, Connie focuses on providing a first-rate piano recital venue for eastside teachers and musicians. She has hosted more than 60 events at Bellevue store and many more to come in the future. Like Hope, Connie loves classical music and enjoys working with teachers, musicians and artists to create community events and brings synergy to the music society in Eastside.
