The piano at Union Station is once again open for public use. To celebrate its return, Metro Art Presents aired this week five solo piano performances that were recorded in June. One of the performers was Jonathan Montes, whom many of us know from the Salsa and Latin Jazz circuits. Below you’ll see him offering two of his original compositions – “Calle 12,” and “Voyage.”
So now you know that, if you know how to play the instrument, you have a chance to show off your craft on the Union Station public piano. It is open daily on a first-come, first-served, basis, to any player, for up to 20 minutes.
Union Station is located at 800 N. Alameda St., Los Angeles CA 90012. While there, enjoy also the gorgeous architecture of this 1939 Mission Modern gem, which is the largest passenger train station in the West Coast. Make it an afternoon and enjoy a coffee, a beer, or an ice-cream. More about Union Station here.
