WORCESTER, Mass. - A traveling concert truck is visiting elementary schools and businesses across Central Massachusetts this week.
On Tuesday, the concert truck was at Clark Street School in Worcester.
Pianists and husband and wife duo Nick Luby and Susan Zhang converted a 16-foot box truck into a mobile concert hall, complete with lights, sound system, and piano.
"We wanted to be able to share music more easily. Give people more access to concerts,” Luby said. “We just so happen to be in this unique position to keep music going during the pandemic because of our outdoor venue."
The two have traveled across the country to present their concerts at festivals and schools, as well as in neighborhoods and parks.
“Playing for kids is probably one of the most fun kind of concerts we do,” Zhang said. “It's exciting to see their reaction to the music and bring it in a way to them that's fun. We really love doing that. We're both kids at heart."
Music Worcester commissioned the truck to visit the area this week.
Music Worcester’s executive director, Adrien Finlay, said, "To have artists of this caliber interacting and entertaining and inspiring our students here in Worcester, we could think of nothing better than to do this for Music Worcester’s return to live performances this season."
The truck will be in Boylston at the Hillside Complex on Friday night at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
