I don't have one. I have a keyboard that plugs into the computer and plays through there, if you have the software. It came with a 'learn to play the piano' software package My wife bought for me and my son many years ago. I used it for a while but, when that computer played out, I never loaded the software onto the newer one. It was a DOS programme, so that will give you some idea of how long ago that was.

This grand piano mysteriously turned up on a sandbar in Maimi's Biscayne Bay, about 600 feet from shore. Personally I believe it will be used for a performance of John Cage's "4′33".

The NZ Herald, which had a different photo, suggests the Water Music.

Hmmmm, I can't tell if that's a bird or candelabra on it. Liberace, anyone???

link to story about the piano - apparently student applying to art school thought it would be a good addition to his application. I think it's great...

Exsultate Justi” by the Franciscan friar/composer Lodovico Viadana (1560-1627) was unknown to me until I saw it in the church bulletins — so I consulted Google, and discovered that this is indeed a lovely piece of music. It’s performed here by the Adoremus Slovak Choir. It’s short — only a couple of minutes — and well worth your time.

Nice indeed. Also good-quality video and sound, and a good-looking blonde soprano.
