Baltimore-based pianists convert vehicle into roving Concert Truck

Posted on: September 23, 2020

“You needn’t visit a gallery or head to a concert hall to experience great art in Baltimore,” writes Sameer Rao in Sunday’s (9/20) Baltimore Sun. “Quite a bit of it will actually sneak up on you in the midst of a stroll or drive past your favorite park, landmark or street…. Look for the Concert Truck while strolling around your neighborhood: a truck that opens on one side to show one or two musicians seated at a piano, busting out classical masterpieces…. The Concert Truck was converted by award-winning pianists Susan Zhang and Nick Luby, both 31, into a mobile recital hotspot. While they don’t always post where they’ll play, part of the joy is stumbling across them when you least expect it. That said, they sometimes post info on their Facebook or other social media platforms. They recently played at the Light City festival and … did a surprise show in Patterson Park. They plan to do a small tour of parks in Baltimore this fall, but are figuring out the safest way to execute it because of the pandemic.” Also covered in the article are murals by Mowgli and Jamie Grace Alexander honoring Black Lives Matter and Black Trans Lives Matter, respectively.
