GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Grand Junction Symphony is hitting a high note and adding to the culture in Grand Junction.

The symphony has placed four pianos along Main Street through May 19 for their Keys to the City:Street Piano Project. They are allowing the public full use of the pianos.

On Wednesday night, different members of the community, including CMU students, played a free concert in front of Main Street Bagels.

"A lot of kids nowadays really don't get a chance to get their hands on stuff like that, play an actual classical piano," said Jordan Chritie, CMU student. "It's a really good opportunity for people to just kind of get their hands wet and see what it's all about."

This is the first year the symphony has placed pianos downtown, but they plan on doing it for years to come.

The symphony received a grant from the Grand Junction Arts and Culture, making this project possible.
