5/30/2008 [Corporate]Yamaha Instruments Fuel Great Music Coming From Summer Stages Nationwide.
Yamaha Drums and Pianos supply top-notch instruments for some of the nation's major jazz festivals, including the Playboy Jazz Festival, held every June at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Yamaha drums and pianos will also occupy all ten stages at the San Jose Jazz Festival in August. For over 20 years, Yamaha has provided drums and pianos for the Monterey Jazz Festival, the world's longest-running jazz festival, held the third weekend of September.
Yamaha Piano division will be very busy, providing instruments for more than a dozen major festivals throughout the season. 2008 marks the 40th anniversary of the prestigious Newport Music Festival, the crown jewel of summer destinations for chamber music performances, as well as the 21st year that Yamaha has provided concert and conservatory grand pianos, along with a range of upright and digital instruments, to the venerated event.
Yamaha pianos will also be used at the seventh annual Keyboard Ensemble and Technology Seminar, a music education course and festival set to convene at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, in late June. This fun and fascinating program enables music educators at all levels to master the latest teaching methods using Yamaha Clavinova digital pianos and portable keyboard products in a supportive environment.
