Don't Miss "Play Me, I'm Yours" Through Sepetember 17th
on't Miss "Play Me, I'm Yours" Through Sepember 17th
Last Saturday morning, we went to Findlay Market for lunch and to shop for food and enjoy all the booths. Lo and behold, there they were playing a piano at the west end of the building, surrounded by lookers and listeners. It's a happening that doesn't happen every day!
Why not take yourself or your children to one of these outdoor installations and play up a storm (rest assured that Piano Buddies cover them, if a real storm approaches). Pictures of you playing outdoors will bring back memories for many years to come!
The concept for "Play Me, I'm Yours" originated in the imagination of artist, Luke Jerram, while he was visiting a laundromat. He was looking for a catalyst for conversation in our sometime invisible communities. He certainly found one!
The event is an outgrowth of the celebration of 150 years of public radio in Cincinnati. A joint event, the organization came from WGUC, WVXU and WMUB. The 35 pianos are located all around their listening areas in Cincinnati, Hamilton and Oxford.
You can get all the locations by going to their website, http://www.streetpianos.com/cincinnati2010/. Special event schedules are also on the site and now people are adding pictures of their loved ones playing in the various locations. Please add yours!
