Piano on a Sand Bar

Posted at 10:01 AM on January 26, 2011 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

In a widely reported story, a grand piano has mysteriously appeared in the middle of a bay in South Florida, sitting on a sand bar.

According to the New York Times, it's been theorized that there's a connection between the piano and the opening of the New World Symphony's new campus in Miami Beach. Seems a little tenuous--but we'll be broadcasting the big NWS concert tonight at 6, so I guess we'll accept the plug.

Meanwhile, the jokes abound. Piano bar.....Florida Keys......
