Tonight, PBS will broadcast "Carole King: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize In Performance at the White House" a tribute to one of America's most successful songwriters and hosted by the President and the First Lady. To mark the occassion, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to talk with White House Curator, Bill Allman, about one of the White House's most recognized artifacts, The Steinway Piano.
Before the PBS show airs tonight, watch this video about the famous piano that has helped to establish the East Room of the White House as a focal point for the performing arts.
