best type of wood for following desk project

Hi forum!!
i'm creating a slim desk with a long sliding drawer.
It will have 4 height adjustable legs (chrome platted steel)
the table top is 65 x 19 inches
the sliding drawer must be 55 inches long because it will store a digital piano (or music keyboard).

I have attached a picture to help you understand.
I'm trying to figure out the best type of wood for the Table (desk) top. This is because the sliding drawer with the digital piano will become heavy around 70 lbs.

I will be attaching 2 drawer sides (3/4 ") via L brackets to the table top.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!
