MIA member Casio, renowned producer of the multiple award winning Celviano Grand Hybrid Digital Piano (designed in collaboration with C. Bechstein) is excited to announce a Facebook live session with the Ivor Novello award-winning artist Laura Mvula; as part of its ‘Action in Music’ initiative. The exclusive session will be broadcast on London Live’s Facebook Channel tomorrow – Wednesday 5th July at 2pm.
Fronted by Laura Mvula, Casio’s ‘Action in Music’ initiative is a nationwide campaign which aims to shine a spotlight on outstanding music education. The Facebook live session will showcase an interview with Laura followed by a live performance, which will also honour the upcoming Music Teacher of the Year Awards on Friday 7th July, a free activity-filled event for music teachers and the public to attend at the Barbican Centre, London.
Laura will perform on the Celviano Grand Hybrid GP-500 which, as a unique hybrid digital piano combines key elements of an acoustic grand piano, such as the Natural Grand Hammer Action mechanism that follows the travel, recoil and motion of a grand piano, and full-length precision wooden keys – the perfect combination for both new learners and experienced pianists.
As part of their initiative, Casio has been working with schools across the UK – including The BRIT School, the Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts (LIPA), East London Arts and Music (ELAM) and many more- to celebrate the achievements of music teachers nationwide and encourage students to nominate their favourite music teacher for Classic FM’s Music Teacher of the Year Awards with Casio and ABRSM.
