Excerpt From UCLA Medical Center Auxiliary and Volunteer News, "Musicians With A Caring Heart":
"If you have ever wandered the hallways of the 200 Medical Plaza Building on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon, more than likely you were treated to the lovely music of volunteer . . . Gerry Bryant . . . [an] exceptional volunteer who donate[s his] time and talent to the patients of the 200 Medical Plaza. It is [his] hope that [his] music will brighten the days of the people visiting the building, while also teaching an appreciation for fine music. . . .
"Gerry Bryant, more commonly known as the "Piano Man," exudes a special warmth and exuberance while playing the piano for the patients at the 200 Medical Plaza. Each [Monday] and Wednesday, Gerry plays an arrangement of music including jazz, classical, and even popular tunes for the many passersby and regulars that come to hear him. . . .
"Above all, music is what is important to Gerry and being able to share his talent and ability with others is a true gift. Often times Gerry will be accompanied at the piano by an impromptu vocalist who becomes inspired by his music. Other times, Gerry will play special children's songs to a young audience. Most of all, he creates many smiles on the faces of people as they enjoy his music."
