Seven-year-old Kai Cumbers plays the piano that made its debut at Persimmon Place in Dublin during Piano in the Plaza, which started Aug. 1 and will run through Aug. 8. The event will help raise funds for Pennies for Kids, a nonprofit that helps provide back-to-school clothes for kids in need throughout the Tri-Valley. Called the “American Beauty” piano, the instrument is decorated with American musicians, singers and composers. (Photos – Doug Jorgensen)
