About Pianos in the Parks
The Pianos in the Parks campaign uses the power of music and art to encourage you to discover your parks, your musical talent, your inner performer and your community.
The pianos have been auctioned off and have a new home. But guess what? The parks are still there! So get out and discover the many things going on in Seattle and King County parks and public spaces this summer. It’s never too late.
In the month that the pianos were out in the parks and open spaces, many videos were posted to our Facebook page. Check out our finalists! The winner will perform on August 22 at the Concerts at the Mural.
VIDEO CONTEST UPDATE
The Pianos in the Parks video contest ended at 11:59 p.m., Aug. 17, 2014. Our finalists have been announced. A panel of judges will then vote on a winner, whose act will get a chance to perform Friday, August 22 at the KEXP and Seattle Center Concerts at the Mural. Keep checking back here for updates.
Find a Park & Play
Twenty artist-designed pianos will be in Seattle and King County parks and open spaces through August 17. Discover a park that’s new to you, revisit a park you love -- either way, you’ll find a unique piano in 20 parks and open spaces. Don’t miss seeing them all!See the entire Piano Map
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.More About Our Partners
