    The. Most. Magical. Experience. After almost 10 hours on the go yesterday, we arrived in Vancouver Airport. The lovely Gina from @westjet was pushing me through the airport to my next gate, when I started gesturing madly at the piano in excitement. It’d been a month since I’d played or even seen a piano like this, and I thought my heart was going to explode from happiness. One problem: this gorgeous #yamahapiano from @tomleemusiccanada (xox guys!!) was roped off with a big “don’t touch” sign. Gah! I was sad, but assured Gina it was enough to SEE a piano. She then called some wizard at airport authority, to ask for permission for me to play, and removed the ropes. I rolled up and play all the melodies that had been haunting me for the past month: Smile, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, La Vie en Rose, A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square, Lullaby of Birdland. I forgot everything: the fatigue, the adrenaline of travel, the fact I was in a crowded airport, everything. I fell through the cracks in the silence between the notes. I have no idea how long I played before getting the worst hand cramp of life 😂 (depicted during this video #bless). But it was magic. Shoutout to Gina at #vancouverinternationalairport for going the extra mile. I’m so freakin’ grateful! - - - @westjetmagazine y’all should feature this incredible employee. Heart of gold and a beautiful story to boot!! Gina FTW! - - - #piano #publicpiano #yvrairport #brbjazztime #improv #latenightjazz #jetlagjazz #ilovewestjet #westjetter #pianistsofinstagram #jazzmusic #jazzpiano #thisiswhyweplay #practicepracticepractice #dowhatsetsyoursoulonfire #simplejoys

Comments:

I began to play the piano. Within 2 minutes a woman with a badge (politely) said that she has a shift playing and that she'd be returning in a minute and then she'd need to continue her shift. I asked her if the piano is available to the public and she said no. After her shift she has to put it in the corner and set up the auto feature. I'm so disappointed by the yvr policy. Another example of No fun city Vancouver. Sadly, the person in charge doesn't understand the value of public pianos especially in airports.

I played it on January 21/23. It’s so beautiful! I was thrilled to find it. The “off” switch for the automatic playing feature is located under the keyboard on the left side of the black box.
