you noticed? We have a beautiful new instrument in the music area. It
looks like a baby grand piano but it is so much more! It’s a Yamaha
Calvinova CVP-900: the top of the line in digital keyboards.
That beautiful grand piano sound you hear
is actually a digital “sample” of a real 9-foot concert grand piano.
There are over 800 other digital samples covering a range of percussion
instruments, strings, woodwinds, brass, pianos, organs, harpsichords,
and vocal effects.
Where did it come from? It was a gift from
an anonymous donor. The Music Ministry is extremely grateful for
having been gifted in such a way. The Calvinova is so versatile that
all of our music groups are able to utilize the instrument in different
ways; perfectly suiting their own specific needs. Each particular
musical style can be better articulated by the variety of colors and
timbres available on the instrument. The textures of sound the keyboard
is capable of are limited only by the imagination of the player.
On behalf of the entire Music Ministry,
thank you, our anonymous friend, with deepest gratitude for this
extraordinary gift. (March 7, 2004)
