    You couldn't make it up!

    Janitor's piano talent revealed

    A janitor's hidden talent as a virtuoso pianist has been discovered at a leading Scots university.

    Aleksander Kudajczyk, 28, from Katowice in Poland, cleans corridors at Glasgow University but was overheard playing concert-standard pieces.
    He had asked to use a piano in the University chapel and staff watched him play using a webcam.
    Chaplaincy secretary Joan Keenan said his music was so amazing that colleagues also logged on to watch.
    Since the revelation, Mr Kudajczyk has been allowed to practice for up to six hours a day at the university.
    On Tuesday, he will play a concert of Chopin pieces during Glasgow's West End Festival, his second public performance during the event.

    Cool story!

    "Before arriving in Scotland about six months ago, he worked as a professional musician in Poland."

    If he was working as a professional musician less than a year ago, the real question is why did he become a janitor? Not that there may not be a good reason, but it kind of takes some punch out of the story...

    That's an easy question to answer Sean,

    Don't bank on making a living on being a talented musician,writer,arranger whatever!

    Reminds me of the cell phone salesman in England who recently brought down the house on "Britain's Got Talent" with his rendition of Nessun Dorma...

    Oh well - like Ray said - don't count on making a living at it.

    He's still working as a janitor, not for long I suspect.

    On "America's Got Talent" why are a majority of the judges not from America? I think they're trying to sabotage our little competition...

    He'd be a fool to quit. Why take a pay cut?
