Ever made your way over to Lerner’s iconic ramps for a midday break only to be inundated, upon arrival, by the wafting of piano scales?  Bwog has also encountered those mysterious etudes on a number of occasions, but today we were in for quite the surprise. 

While taking time away from surveying the cracks and stains in the ramps this afternoon, Bwog had the pleasure of nestling down on the far end of the large, red, and suede swirly chair in the Lerner Piano Lounge to take in, for a brief moment, the second incarnation of “Music on the Ramps,” (the first was last week). 

Courtesy of a free music and food event hosted by the appropriately named new student group Live at Lerner, the smell of fresh churros coupled nicely today with the sweet sound of music, ensuring that the almost-daily rendition of Beethoven’s “Sonata Pathetique” would have to wait, if only temporarily.  

Free churro and tortilla chips in hand, Bwog enjoyed a merry serenade courtesy of Jacob Friedman, devoured a selection from the New Congress’s repertoire, and delighted in the soulful strums of Tony Gong’s guitar.
