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 16 and 17, 2017, the City of Luxembourg already marks the pace with the 3rd edition of “My Urban Piano” (pianos in the city). 21 pianos are scattered around the city since June 1st.
You have until the 18th 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 Station and Strasbourg Street at the Cultural and Sports Center (closed the Weekend) Pfaffenthal, Lift Ville-Haute, Center, Rue de la Reine, Bonnevoie, Place du Parc Gasperich, Place de l’Horloge (closed Wednesday and Sunday) Merl / Belair, Merl Park, Grund, Neimënster, Limpertsberg, Place Laurent, Luxembourg airport etc …
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!
