Pierce batons in the hands of Riccardo Muti


Maestro Muti gave Alan Pierce's baton a test drive at one of the Chicago Symphony concerts right before they went on their European tour (click on this link for tour info). "Muti loved my baton," said Pierce. "And he said that he would use it from now on. He prefers batons that are about 14.5 inches. He expressed his gratitude and I felt very proud."

Pierce also sold six batons to three conductors who were attending the rehearsals. If you are interested in Pierce baton, check out his web site here.
