Wedding Music: Piano and/or Recorder
Settings on the Digital Stage Piano include "concert grand piano," "harpsichord," "organ," "string orchestra," and "chamber woodwinds."  In all, the keyboard authentically replicates over 100 instruments—including orchestral brass with timpani. It is perfect for the Wedding March and other fanfares!

Having an outdoor wedding? The Digital Stage Piano can be set up anywhere electricity is available.

Regular acoustic
Piano is also suitable for wedding music or recorder selections with piano, organ, or harpsichord accompaniment.

16th- and 17th-century recorder music is especially appropriate for Renaissance-style weddings. Most recorder music is performed on soprano or alto, although the tenor recorder is sometimes used as a solo instrument.

Receptions and Parties: Indoors and Outdoors

Piano and/or recorder music are lovely for receptions and parties—indoors and outdoors. The Digital Stage Piano may be used outdoors in a patio or garden setting.

Kay offers a variety of repertoire from classical piano repertoire to Broadway musicals, wedding music, songs, George Winston and other piano improvisations, orchestral transcriptions, Christmas holiday music, and contemporary Christian music. Requests are also welcome.

Especially for outdoor parties—Irish, Scottish, and English songs and dances on the recorder are bright and lively. The sound carries well on soprano instruments, although a microphone is available.

  Digital Stage Piano

The Roland Digital Stage Piano is a full-size, 88-key keyboard. It is available for performance on all occasions. The default piano setting closely replicates the sound of a 9-foot concert grand piano.  A beautiful sound! The keyboard also has settings for electric piano, organ, and harpsichord.

The full-size keyboard allows for the performance of all solo piano literature. Volume control allows for setting the music to either concert level or as background dinner music.

  Use of CD (iPod) Background

A special feature of Kay's performances on recorder is the use of recorded backgrounds.  Professional accompaniments from CD's (on iPod) include harpsichord and cello, lute, orchestra, piano, and traditional Irish instruments. 

The benefit of performing with CD (iPod) accompaniment is that a single musician can fill a room with the sound of a "trio" or "orchestra."  Recorder sounds beautiful in combination with many other historic and modern instruments.

The iPod is played through a Wadia iTransport unit and Yamaha self-powered speaker to provide a high-quality sound system.
