FAIRBANKS - Always wanted to play the keyboards in front of an international audience? Here's your chance.

An oversized battery-operated keyboard has been placed in front of the Arctic Cam at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, which has viewers from around the world. Visitors are welcome to stop by and dance a tune or two during regular business hours, unless it's raining. Friends and family can watch (no audio, yet. We're working on it.) at

From the parking lot, the Arctic Cam is in a second-floor window directly in front of the keyboard.

The keyboard is part of the University of Alaska Fairbanks promotion of the Alaska International e-Piano Competition, June 28-July 12. Twenty-four young pianists will compete for $65,000 in prizes, as well as performances in Chicago and New York.

They will perform on an internet-connected piano, a Yamaha Disklavier, which will be streamed lived and shared with other connected Disklavier pianos around the world.
