COFFEE BREAK | Swiss Pianist Plays Piano In Mid-Air

By Jennifer Liu on August 18, 2017

Piano playing has reached new heights, literally! As part of this year’s Contre-Plongées Festival in Jaude, France, Alain Roche performed his signature “Piano Vertical” act in the town square—hanging over the audience in the sky.

Have another COFFEE BREAK HERE.
