City of London Festival: Street Pianos
This event has now finished. Until Jul 12 2009
Time Out says
For three weeks 30 pianos will be installed in the street at locations all over London. Decorated to suit their location and marked 'Play me, I'm Yours', they'll be available to anyone who fancies a tinkle. Each piano will have its own songbook attached to encourage communal involvement - and a protective tarpaulin to pull over if rain threatens. A fulltime piano tuner on a pushbike will ensure the pianos remain in good condition. Organised by Sing London in association with the City of London Festival and artist Luke Jerram, the event is an act of trust that is exactly what Londoners need right now. The locations can be found at www.streetpianos.co.uk. Individuals can use the website to promote their recitals and it will also give details of communal events.
