Pianos on the Street
The City of Port Coquitlam welcomes Pianos on the Street to brighten the neighborhood with visual art and music, offering community members and visitors the opportunity to play, enjoy and share their talents using these creative and accessible pianos. The pianos will be located in Veterans Park in front of City Hall, Lions Park, Settlers Park, and at the Hyde Creek Rec Centre from July 15 to August 28.
The pianos are provided as part of the Pianos on the Street outdoor music project. Pianos on the Street is a community engagement initiative spearheaded by Pacey’s Pianos and the Piano Teachers Federation in partnership with the City of Port Coquitlam. Special thanks to local artists Elvira González, Ashley Carpenter, Katelyn Sieb, and the band members from the Kwikwetlem First Nation who developed and placed their unique designs on the instruments.
We encourage the community to post a video on Facebook or Instagram playing ‘O Canada’ on one of the public pianos with the hashtag #pococanada150. Individuals will then be entered to win a prize which will be announced at our Canada 150 Celebration on August 26.
