Celesta: An Underrepresented Keyboard Instrument

Just now I was putting together visual aids for my music classes and came across a pictorial list of keyboard instruments with an instrument that I wasn’t familiar with: the celesta. (Pronounce the “cel-” like you would for “cello”). So I went on a brief research endeavor and came across this NPR piece, which I thoroughly enjoyed and couldn’t be a better introduction to the instrument:

NPR: The Celesta: The Sound of the Sugar Plum Fairy

Enjoy!
