With the melody of Let It Be and the soothing sound of lapping waves in the background, the video opens with a black screen and the statement, "Big Pass in Sarasota is one of the last unspoiled inlets left in Florida and its sand nourishes Siesta Key." Within moments, hands appear on the keys of an organ and then the camera pulls back to show the lovely young woman seated at the musical instrument, her turquoise earrings a slightly lighter shade than the waves flowing behind her. As Sarasota native Maria Lane sings that last, haunting ballad of The Beatles, the scene shifts again to show the viewer that she is surrounded by water. Thus opens Big Pass Piano, the video whose primary shooting was the focus of a March 1 production team in Big Sarasota Pass. Big Pass Piano is the latest salvo launched by the nonprofit organization Save Our Siesta Sand 2 (SOSS2) in an effort to halt the U.S. Maria Lane performs Let It Be in the middle of Big Pass.
