RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Raleigh officials are offering people passing by a downtown plaza an opportunity to stop and enjoy some music.

On Friday afternoon, the city placed a piano in a corner of City Plaza. Officials tell the News & Observer it'll stay there for a few months, in hopes that people will stop for a moment, play or listen, and have fun.

Downtown coordinator Jen Baker says the piano offers a way for people to interact and just enjoy downtown.

Raleigh bought two pianos from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Officials say the other will be painted by the Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative and placed in that part of downtown.
