COME PLAY WITH US!
August 1 - 18, 2019
We’ve made a few significant, but subtle changes since the last go-around. Nothing too crazy–we just realized that Pianos In the Parks presented a rare opportunity to empower neighborhood CAMARADERIE, while strengthen civic pride in the communities that serve as piano destinations.
To accomplish this One Reel recruited invested partners from each community to serve as “hosts” – each as unique as the neighborhood they represent. From arts groups to chambers of commerce to Scout Troop #41025, Pianos in the Parks transformed from a city-wide event to a cooperative platform for communities to show their civic pride.
DESPITE THE STRUCTURAL CHANGES, PIANOS IN THE PARKS hasn’t verved from our original intent.
Pianos in the parks remains a public art and MUSIC event series that invites COMMUNITY engagement.
Whether you are a piano player, a music lover or an arts enthusiast, Pianos in the parks delivers a rare opportunity to travel to 13 diverse SEATTLE & EASTside destinations during the height of summer.
There’s no better time to take a break and have some fun.
VISIT. EXPLORE. CONNECT.
If your mission is to play pianos in beautiful settings, look no further.
You’ll find plenty.
Support Local Artists
Each piano is painted and decorated by a local artist from each of the neighborhoods involved, creating a truly localized event that connects each of the pianos to the communities around them.
Attend Free Performances
Throughout the month, we have a packed schedule of special events and performances taking place all over King County! Take advantage of Seattle summer by relaxing at a park while enjoying the tunes of a local musician playing on a painted piano.
