The community piano has returned to Del Ray’s Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, according to Visit Del Ray.

The piano is situated in the square for public use: anyone can come and play it.

The piano was donated by the Del Ray United Methodist Church and pushed up three blocks by locals Kevin Jahns, Bill Blackburn and Jude.

“Stay tuned this week as local artists Margaret Wohler and Kristin Neubauder paint the piano!” Visit Del Ray said in a post on Facebook. “We can’t wait to hear all your mini-concerts at the Square.”
