Magical Moment 421, "Fly Me to the Moon"

This video was taken at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn during the Play Me, I'm Yours project last summer. I had a music box that played the melody of "Fly Me to the Moon," when I was little. There was a ceramic girl watching a little bird that spun in circles. I remember the first time I heard a recording of Frank Sinatra singing this song and I thought, how did Frank Sinatra know that my music box played that tune? :)

What a special treat to see your melodic playing while flying to the moon....

Looks as if your little audience was very appreciative. That must have been a fun project, but weren't those pianos at risk of ruin from rain or such? Did someone put them under cover during inclement weather? Curious minds need to know. :)

Paul, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the video.

Linda, the pianos were outside for 2 weeks. Each piano had a "care-taker" that covered it for the night. Unfortunately a few pianos were vandalized. They are looking for ways to improve the project this summer. After the 2 weeks, each piano was donated to a school.

Stuff could always be worse said...

Maybe I repeat myself here, but you have talent!
