What do you get when you take 22 pianos, a bunch of talented and creative artists and 32,000+ acres of Seattle & King County parks? You get Pianos in the Parks – Volume 2!
Once again, PlayNetwork has partnered with a variety of outstanding community partners who are focused on supporting the power of art and music. Featuring 22 pianos donated by Classic Pianos, and designed by Gage Academy of Arts students and Alums, these once landfill destined instruments have been transformed into works of art. These pianos have been placed in parks and public spaces throughout the Greater Seattle area with intent to encourage the community to take a moment, sit down and play! To find a piano near you, visit the Pianos in the Parks website.
This initiative demonstrates many of PlayNetwork’s Core Values by showcasing our appreciation of the arts and local community. As part of the program, we are providing video production services for events throughout the month, in effort to generate awareness and encourage community engagement.
The Pianos in the Parks initiative culminates at the Seattle Center’s Mural Amphitheatre as part of the KEXP Concerts at the Mural event in August. If you would like to win a chance to perform at one KEXP Concerts on Friday, August 21, visit their website.
This year’s event runs from July 16, 2015 through August 16, 2015. For more information or to find a piano near you, visit Pianos in the Parks. Many thanks to Laird Norton, Seattle Parks and Recreation, King County Parks, the Seattle Symphony, KEXP and many others for their ongoing support. Get out and play!
