Celestas are also popular in film scores
Celestas can be heard more clearly from the rear of the room
Celestas are unique in their ability to be heard from far away. Interestingly, this fact-coupled with the reverberation in a given room-means that those sitting all the way to the rear of a concert hall can better hear the celesta, compared with those sitting in the front row. Although celestas produce an adorable sound, they have a real presence.
