Over the course of one weekend in October 2013, I embarked on a massive public art event: playing one song on each of the 75 public street pianos  presented by the Celebrity Series of Boston. Each song was requested by someone different, and the whole journey took two days to complete. Via social media, using the hashtag #75pianos1james, the Boston community was able to follow along the journey, and several people joined in along the way to sing and support. It was an absolutely wild adventure and by far one of the most exciting things I’ve ever had the opportunity to do.

The entire experience was captured in the mini-documentary “75 Pianos” that premiered at Emerson College and has received recognition in several film festivals.
