KCET's Val Zavala visited three of the 30 pianos placed around Los Angeles for the public (performance) art project "Play Me, I'm Yours." In San Pedro she meets U-Jung Jung, a Julliard-trained pianist who has set out to play each piano (watch above). Over at the Watts/Willowbrook Boys' and Girls' Club kids had a try at being maestros for the day, and in Chinatown, Val speaks to Rachel Fine, the Executive Director of the L.A. Chamber Orchestra, which brought the project to Southern California (watch both below).
