Purchase of New Keyboard(August 06, 2011)
When we first got together as a group, our MD, Andrew, kindly made his own keyboard available for use by BelCanto. We resolved from the outset to endeavour to obtain our own instrument but for the past 9 months we have been thwarted in our attempts to obtain funding. It was resolved that an appeal would be made to members to make interest-free loans or gifts. Within two months we had enough money to make the purchase and on Saturday, 6 August, 2011, Andrew, Sian and two others of the group went to Rich Tone Music Limited of Sheffield and purchased our brand new Roland RD-700NX Digital Stage Piano. Thanks to all who have made this purchase possible. What a lovely instrument it is and we now look forward to hearing the enhancement this keyboard will surely bring to our performances. We will keep you posted.
