Back on State Street October 5-24, 2021!
Pianos on State spontaneously reintroduces music and art into people’s everyday lives, as they go about their business, about their shopping. You don’t have to pass any test, you don’t have to have any qualifications, they’re there for everyone.
Art teaches us that you can change the pattern. A piano can be on the street. A stranger walking down the street next to you might have powers you didn’t expect. They might suddenly sit down at that piano and play Chopin’s Nocturne Opus 9 in E Flat major no. 2. And that is a hopeful feeling.
