Remember a few weeks back when we shared the news that the church has purchased a new digital piano for the choir room? This Sunday Steve Lawrence will introduce it after worship.

We are planning to roll the piano into the hallway off the Gathering Space, where Steve play and let us hear some of the different instruments the piano can voice, including harpsichord, organ, and strings. It shouldn’t interfere with fellowship (or cookie munching), but those who want to come over for a closer look (mind your cookie crumbs) can ask Steve questions and learn what our newest musical instrument can do.

The first digital pianos were specialized versions of 1980s synthesizers. Synthesizers could produce a staggering array of sounds, including acoustic piano. That led to the digital pianos of today. Our instrument has a computer that allows Steve to program various options—none of which I have the expertise to describe. So come and meet the instrument on Sunday, and let Steve fill you in.

Peace, Catherine
