Music Department Receives Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano

College of Charleston is the first institution of higher learning in the United States to acquire Yamaha’s CFX Concert Grand Piano Following the recent construction of a five-story addition to the College’s School of the Arts, an anonymous donor generously decided to buy a new piano for the recital hall. After weighing all the options, the man in charge of this significant purchase decision, University Artist-in-Residence Enrique Graf, selected Yamaha’s new CFX concert grand piano.

“I have played and recorded on beautiful Yamaha pianos before,” said Graf. “But when I tried the CFX, I was blown away by the beauty of the sound throughout the registers and the evenness and sensitivity of the action.” [more info]
