Hundreds Turn up for 8-year-old’s Piano Concert
8-year-old Dylan Spoering who advertised a “free piano concert” in his front garden had a fantastic surprise when a crowd of hundreds turned up to watch thanks to the power of the internet.
Passerby Thomas Rehbein was cycling home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, earlier this week when he saw a poster advertising the gig in a front garden and decided to create a Facebook event to see if he could attract a crowd.
His message said:
I have no idea who Dylan Spoering is, but he made this sign and put it out in his front yard, which I saw while biking home.
Wouldn’t it be cool if a bunch of people showed up for his free concert?
Quickly over 600 people said they would attend.
A large crowd turned out despite the rain and over a thousand people also watched a live stream of the concert on the internet.
