Dream Builders is a show on MyArlingtonTV that highlights the ways our community is helping kids dream big, nurture their creativity, polish their skills and develop the tools they need to achieve their American Dream as young adults.

The latest Dream Builders episode focuses on Arlington ISD's partnership with Dan Dipert to provide $135,000 in funding for a piano to be located at the AISD Fine Arts Center, scheduled to open in fall 2020 on property near Division and Collins in Arlington's world-class Entertainment District, the former site of the Eastern Star Home.

The Steinway Spirio Model B Grand Piano will be located in the pre-function space of the Fine Arts Center. The Steinway & Sons Spirio is the world's finest high resolution player piano. It enables you to enjoy performances captured by great pianists - played with such nuance, power and passion that it is utterly indistinguishable from a live performance.

The Steinway Spirio remains a fully functioning Steinway & Sons piano, with the same level of craftsmanship, so students and special guests will also be able to use the piano for live performances. The AISD is the first district in the country to order a Spirio Model B Grand Piano.

The Fine Arts Center, which broke ground on September 13, 2018, will serve the entire district, prekindergarten through 12th grade, and will include a 1,250-seat concert hall, 450-seat theater, art and dance studios, classroom space, instrument repair center, and gallery space.

The City's Office of Communication develops programming for MyArlingtonTV. Viewers can find MyArlingtonTV programs on the following cable systems: Spectrum Channel 16 and AT&T U-Verse channel 99, and streaming capabilities at www.arlington-tx.gov.

All episodes of Dream Builders are also available on the City's YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter account.
