government pianist

The State of California has a pianist?

There are 3,666 state job classifications in the State of California. One of them is state government pianist.

"Page 77 of the state civil-service pay scale shows state pianists earn $13.67 to $26.53 per hour. According to the job description website, the position was established in 1931 and revised in 1972.

“Under direction, in a part-time capacity, to provide piano music for regular and special occasions at a State institution; may also play an organ; and do other related work,” according to the job description.

A state government piano player position? Since 1931? Really? So it's possible for state workers and legislators in California to be serenaded with live piano music while they sit in their ass and waste taxpayer money?
