Roland has expressed its delight that its V-Piano Grand had an important role to play at the recent Academy Awards.

The instrument was central to the 50-piece orchestra which performed at the event conducted by William Ross.

Tom Ranier, who regularly appears on US television programme Dancing With The Stars, was the musician chosen to play the V-Piano Grand.

Dan Krisher, artist relations manager for Roland in America, said he was very pleased with the use of the instrument throughout the prize-giving ceremony.

"The use of the V-Piano Grand on the Oscars demonstrates that it can now take its place on the finest concert stages, thanks to its revolutionary modelling technology and new on-board multi-channel sound system," he stated.

On the night, the big winner was British film The King's Speech, which picked up awards in several major categories.

In addition to being named Best Picture, Colin Firth won the Best Actor in a Leading Role statuette, while Tom Hooper was handed the Directing honour.

Natalie Portman took the Actress in a Leading Role prize for her performance in Black Swan, while Toy Story 3 was named as the top Animated Feature Film.
