Fritz family helping others make beautiful music

June 27, 2012

Photo by Victoria Stanish - St. Marys resident Fred Fritz, shown tuning a guitar, has been in music sales and service his whole life and now runs the family business with his wife, Marie.  

If you’ve caught a local high school (musical) performance lately or attended your child’s recital, chances are Fred and Marie Fritz have been behind the scenes making sure the instruments used are hitting the perfect pitch.
The St. Marys couple owns Fritz Pianos and Organs, a family business that began with Fred’s father, the late Hal Fritz, and also included Fred's brother, the late Frank Fritz, who managed the business's DuBois store until his death nine years ago.
Fred said it’s hard for him to imagine doing something else.
