Piano in the park

It may not produce the next Jon Kimura Parker, but a piano planted in the Century Gardens at Deer Lake Park will allow anyone a chance to tickle the ivories.

The piano is one of several placed around Metro Vancouver as part of Pianos on the Street, a project of the Piano Teachers Federation and its founder, Sean Pacey.

The piano is being painted by students from various art programs at the Shadbolt Centre.

The piano will make its official debut next week with a concert by some of Burnaby’s most talented pianists.

Impromptu pianists can upload a video of themselves playing the piano to the Pianos on the Street website for a chance to win cash prizes.
