Okotokians got a free concert in Olde Towne Plaza again this month, as the second last Picnic at the Piano performance got underway this afternoon.

Classical, Jazz and Musical Theatre artist Bruce Petherick took a seat on the brightly colored piano bench, and treated residents to a thought provoking, ambient and simplistic arrangement of music over the lunch hour.

Petherick is widely known for his creation of Acoustic Spaces and his first recordings, 5 Words of Love and Raindrops.

He will release his newest single Winter Stillness later this year.

While the summer is wrapping up, music lovers can look forward to one more Picnic at the Piano performance with Children's Artist Natasha Sayer, who's music and personality will match the creative and brightly decorated piano she'll play on.
