My Urban Piano Luxembourg: do your scales outdoors!
Outdoor pianos available to passersby
Do you have an artist soul and want to share your talents? Take an active part in the City of Luxembourg summer activity and discover decorated pianos installed in the city of Luxembourg! They take part of the Summer in the City festivities and create mini-musical stages outdoors! Do not hesitate to play your favourite song.
While waiting for the Fête de la musique that will take place in the Grand-Duchy from 15 to 21 June 2018, the City of Luxembourg already marks the pace with the 4th edition of “My Urban Piano” (pianos in the city).
From 31 May, once again, many pianos are put around the city. Until 17 June, discover these decorated pianos that the City of Luxembourg has made available to the public in a park, at crossing points or places visited by tourists and Luxembourgish residents. The following are examples of places where pianos are put:
- Luxembourg airport
- Bonnevoie, Rotondes
- Town centre, Church Saint Alphonse courtyard, Cercle municipal, Place Guillaume and Rue de la Reine, Plateau du Saint Esprit, Grund lift, park E. Klein
- Cents, Centre du Rham
- Central Station district, Luxembourg station, Place des Martyrs and Rue de Strasbourg multi-purpose sports hall
- Grund, Neimënster,
- Kirchberg Coque park and 3 Glands park
- Old town, Rocher du Bock et Letzebuerg City Museum, Rue Large
- Limpertsberg, Place Laurent
- Merl / Belair, Merl Park
- Pfaffenthal, lift and funicular station
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 spontaneously play music in the city. No need to be a specialist of Debussy or Ragtime to play piano, just to feel like it!
Participate in the activity 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 at Place Guillaume. Students from the Conservatoire de Luxembourg will performe there under the supervision of Gary Muller.
