On a lofted grand piano with a backdrop of the "Golden Arches," New York composer ANDREW SHAPIRO performs his artful blend of classical, ambient and minimalist music at the Ground Zero McDonald's in downtown Manhattan every Sunday throughout the year.
Upon learning of a grand piano located in a London McDonald's, Shapiro contacted the franchise and was in turn invited to perform.
That's exactly what he will be doing from Thursday to Saturday this week at the Kensington High Street McDonalds.
For his groundbreaking marriage of fast-food and the contemporary arts, Shapiro received an extensive profile in The New York Times and was featured as the "Best Pianist in a Fast-Food Restaurant" in the "Best of New York" issue of the Village Voice.
