'Street piano' turns passersby into pianists

In a performance-art project that turns passersby into the performers, 30 pianos have been placed outdoors in Los Angeles County, available for anyone to play on. At UCLA, an upright piano sits outside the main entrance of Royce Hall, where students have already gathered to enjoy impromptu concerts. The piano will remain until the end of April for the "Play Me, I'm Yours" project, which brings "street pianos" to cities around the world. The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra brought the project to Los Angeles, and UCLA Performing Arts hosts the UCLA piano.
