Our latest episode of the Celviano Grand Hybrid #actioninmusic tour, saw us showcase our pianos at The Grand Arcade Shopping Centre, Cambridge. The centre is only a short step away from the historic Kings' College Chapel, famed for its evensong services, which has performed rich choral music through out the ages. The City's musical history lent itself perfectly for us to showcase the musical talents of the local community and our latest Grand Hybrid models (adept enough to realize the most technical of classical pieces). Our partner retailer for the event was Millers Music, a retailer also steeped in the musical tradition of the City. All that was left to do was invite local students from The Leys School to wow and delight us with their musicality, passion for creating music and provide their own insights into the action and sound of Celviano Grand Hybrid piano...
