My Urban Piano Luxembourg: make your scales outdoors!
Outdoor pianos available to passersby
Do you have an artist’s soul and want to share your talents? Take an active part in the summer animation of the City of Luxembourg and discover the 21 decorated pianos installed in the city of Luxembourg! They are part of the animation Summer in the City and create mini-musical scenes outdoors! Do not hesitate to play your favorite song.
While waiting for the music festival that will take place in the Grand-Duchy on June 15th to 21st, 2018, the City of Luxembourg already marks the pace with the 4th edition of “My Urban Piano” (pianos in the city). 21 pianos are scattered around the city since May, 31st.
You have until the 17th of June to discover these decorated pianos that the City of Luxembourg has made available to the public, at the turn of a park, in places of passage or very frequented by Luxembourg residents and tourists. Among the installation points of the pianos in the city:
- Luxembourg airport

Colorful pianos! Each piano is transformed into a unique piece after being decorated by one of the project partners. As in the previous two years, the City of Luxembourg used the talent and creativity of local associations, arts and education groups.
Participate in creating a moment of conviviality and share your talents
The idea is simple, embellish the city, create conviviality and encourage passersby to play music in the city spontaneously. No need to be a specialist of Debussy or Ragtime to get to the piano, just to feel like it!
Participate in the animation by posting videos on Facebook with the hashtag #myurbanpiano2018. You can win vouchers! More information on My Urban Piano facebook page.
The closing concert will take place on Sunday 17 June at 3 pm in Place Guillaume. Students from the Conservatoire de Luxembourg will be performing for Gary Muller’s direction.
