The Momentum Is Building

The Momentum Is Building

As pianos continue to be planted in key positions throughout Beacon, musicians from all over town were making themselves heard. On Saturday the piano at the Polhill Park Visitor’s Center was front and center as local pianist Jesse Stacken gave the first “tiny concert”. Jesse seemed undistracted by all the passing traffic, and the sound of his piano succeeded in holding the attention of his audience as well. Throughout the day the piano stayed busy (and in tune) as other local musicians stepped up to play. Just up South Avenue the piano in front of the Beacon Historical Society was rockin’… And more pianos are due to hit the streets in the oncoming days. The piano in front of the Beacon Historical Society received a highly decorative coat of paint. Meanwhile artist Lori Merhige is putting the finishing touches on her epic Glitter-Wing piano. It is due to be installed on Thursday morning. We can only imagine what it will look like in its finished state, but here is a preview… We are hoping the weather cooperates for the remainder of the week so the pianos can come out from under their tarps and start making beautiful music again.
