I've just read in International Piano magazine about the DP show (www.nationaldigitalpianoshow.co.uk) being held on 7th & 8th December in the hallowed grounds of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, whose alumni include the late, great pianist John Ogdon and the current Master of the Queen's Music Peter Maxwell Davies (of 'An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise' and 'Mavis in Las Vegas' fame - his 'Farewell to Stromness' for piano is folky and tuneful, and easy to play - as well as avantgarde stuff).

No pesky acoustics to drown out the soft DPs, unlike most other shows of this sort, and experts from several DP companies on hand to answer all your DP questions (like, er, what's the difference between PHA-III and G...), plus demos, clinics, mini concerts, even a 'Knobs & Switches session' (the mind boggles... grin).

And if you need someone with the chops to play Rachmaninoff on the NU1 for you (in case you want to hear what Rach 3 sounds like on the NU1 grin), just bribe one of the music students from the practice rooms nearby with a muffin and hot chocolate from the local Starbucks. (In my experience, music students are always hungry).

And it's free, so if you live anywhere in Europe, why not take a holiday in the UK to see Buckingham Palace, and pop over to Manchester for DP enlightenment.....

Yes thanks for this. I don't suppose we'll see any new announcements though. Manchester can be nice to vist prior to Xmas.

Oooh I'm so on the wrong side of the world! Is anyone willing to go and maybe play 20 questions with a Roland rep to find out about the actions? (as was hinted at by the OP smile )
