A lady was playing an outdoor piano, part of the Sarasota Keys project. Several highly decorated pianos are at busy street corners, anyone can sit down and play. One is in front of the Clasico bar and restaurant. It's great for the owner, it is amazing how many good musicians sit down and entertain the Clasico customers.
Well, this lady, Gloria, also sang. She sang soulful music with great feeling. I left a few dollars on the piano and waited for a break, to speak with her. Gloria is 64 and has been playing since age 10. A Sarasota native, she attended the Ringling College of Art and Design for a couple of years. Her goal is to resume her studies there and get a degree.
