Mark Chasuk and his family had to clean out their home in Baton Rouge after the recent devastating floods. With their front yard filled with items they can no longer use, Mark sat down at the waterlogged piano to play one last song on it. said, “This piano was under four feet of water, and there is no saving it from the irreparable damage…Playing Albert Pieczonka’s “Tarantella” on the out-of-tune piano brings back lovely memories of less turbulent times for the whole family.”

John White took video of the moment and uploaded it to YouTube. He aptly titled the video “Beautiful music amongst the chaos – Louisiana Flood of 2016,” and it’s already received over 39,000 views. White also started a GoFundMe page hoping to raise money for the families in the homeschooling group that himself and Mark are a part of. 

In the video, one can see how the entire neighborhood had to remove belongings from their houses that were damaged by the flood waters. Mark’s song is like a farewell to the memories each object held, an ode to all of those who were impacted by the floods, and a celebration that the waters receded.
