Who's Involved

Pianos in the Parks is a true public-private partnership, involving many of our area’s leading music and arts organizations. The idea came out of this question: “What can we do that is fun, connects our community, and provides a platform for discovering the great things going on in our local parks?”

The Pianos in the Parks campaign combines the great talents, missions and efforts of the Seattle Symphony, KEXP, Gage Academy of Art, City of Music, Classic Pianos, PlayNetwork, Seattle Parks and Recreation and King County Parks, and is made possible by Laird Norton Wealth Management.

In addition to the primary partners, Pianos in the Parks has received generous support from local artists, musicians, companies and community organizations – making Pianos in the Parks a truly collaborative effort aimed at discovering local parks. We’d especially like to thank 206inc. for creating and producing this program with us.
