New Piano Makes a Grand Entrance at the N.C. Cancer Hospital

A dedication ceremony was held at the N.C. Cancer Hospital on October 29, 2010 to recognize the generous donation by Steve and Jan Capps of Wilmington, NC -- a Yamaha baby grand piano. The piano, equipped with a computerized self-player, means that patients can enjoy a relaxing background of piano music at any time, whether or not a musician is available. The piano is located in the multi-disciplinary clinic waiting area on the second floor of the N.C. Cancer Hospital.

Chancellor Holden Thorp, on the piano, and Terri Houston, Senior Director of Multicultural Programs at UNC-Chapel Hill, on vocals, provided entertainment during the dedication ceremony. Music professor Thomas Otten also took part.
