Pianos on Parade

Pianos on Parade is a joint collaboration between Keys 4/4 Kids, a local nonprofit organization, and the office of St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman. Together, the City of St. Paul, Keys 4/4 Kids, community and business sponsors will showcase the work of local artists and musicians and will coordinate events around these pianos that will optimize their presence throughout the city. Pianos on Parade will spur St. Paul’s residents and visitors to spontaneously engage with art, music, and one another, creating moments of community and highlighting the city’s exceptional commitment to music and arts. Pianos on Parade was inspired, in part, by the work of Luke Jerram, whose street pianos project Play Me I’m Yours has appeared around the world, including at the 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, CA.
