From here until August 24th, Vancouver's streets will be lined with ivory and the sound of fresh piano music now that the "Keys to the Street" program is in full swing. Bringing music to key locations in the city and letting Vancouver's musical students do what they love most, the program was inspired by similar programs all across Canada and Europe.
A Vancouver group is setting up pianos in the city's public spaces and inviting the public to sit down and tickle the ivories as they are passing by this summer.
The "Keys to the Street" program which runs to Aug. 24, has already placed three pianos at:
Creekside Community Centre on the False Creek Seawall.
Robson Park at the corner of St. George Street and Kingsway.
Spyglass Dock, 1800 Spyglass Place.
One more is expected to be installed for a short time outside the Vancouver Art Gallery on Robson Street, in partnership with the Vancouver Public Space Network.
Each piano comes with a bench, a funky paint job and rain cover.
