East Japan Railway (JR East) have launched their latest “Joyful Train” service – the Shiki-Shima.

The lounge bar, of course, features a piano, in this case a Yamaha N2, part of the AvantGrand series. This is an obvious choice for such a role as it is one of the best digital pianos around, it has a great sound, feels good to play and is both compact and contemporary in styling.

That is why about 75 people, most of them strangers, showed up at the corner of Main and Gibbs streets — right in front of the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music — to paint four enormous keyboards on the morning of 23 June 2019. Before the paint was dry, the community and social media were celebrating the work.
