Homeless Man Plays Piano Beautifully

(Video Link)

The City of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, recently put pianos in public spaces for people to play. David Rauch, an urban planner, led the project. He says that the results have been beautiful and fun:

“You just know they’re a total success when you see a homeless guy sit down and play Let It Be for over two hours at a stretch,” he smiles.

“All types of people play all kinds of music,” he says, “children play the A-B-C song, mothers and sons play duets, friends play dueling pianos.

“We’ve had people play wonderful classical virtuosos, and an opera company singing around the piano.”

The above video shows a performance on a piano in Sir Winston Churchill Square. Ryan, the pianist, says that he's been homeless for 30 years. During that time, he's taught himself how to play.
