Pianist-in-Place-Saint-Michel-Paris

A Paris afternoon in Place Saint-Michel, complete with music

Most afternoons when we’re in Paris I take the m├ętro to Place Saint-Michel, the crowded plaza on the Seine across from Notre-Dame cathedral. For a few days before I took this picture and video a well-used upright piano sat ready for amateur pianists, most of whom were of the “chopsticks” variety. But one day the music changed, and we were treated to a real musician:

Pianist-in-Place-Saint-Michel-Paris

I watched a while and caught this short video. Stay with it through the end for a view of the famous fountain.

Then I left to write. When I returned four hours later the piano was gone.
