Sarasota’s Public Pianos Have Arrived!
Posted by See Sarasota Live on
That’s right! The public pianos presented by the Sarasota Keys Public Piano Project are officially out in Downtown Sarasota.
To kick off the event on Friday, January 17, six professional pianists took their seats on the piano benches of six creatively painted spinet pianos to give a short concert. Thus, ushering in the new musical project.
From now until the end of May, if you venture to the various locations along Main Street, Palm Avenue and Pineapple Avenue during business hours, you can take part in making Sarasota a little more musical too! Just sit down and start playing for everyone to enjoy. The pianos have also been fit with dehumidifiers to combat the Sarasota weather and they will be taken in every night to ensure their preservation.
No doubt, someone will have an issue with the noise level, but hopefully everyone will see the benefits of this creative project and the pianos will be able to stay long after their 6-month trial period is over.
