If you take a bike ride along the seawall in Vancouver, you will come across a very pleasant surprise. CityStudio, in collaboration with the City of Vancouver have set up several outdoor public pianos for anyone to play freely at anytime of the day. We came across this surprise on our way back from a local performance so we promptly stopped and played a few V&F compositions.
What a grand experience it was to be able to play music to random passers-by with the fresh ocean air breeze and the red sun slowly setting over this beautiful city. Thank you CItyStudio for the “Keys to the Street" project. It was a pleasure to have this experience and we are sure to pass by there a few more times in the upcoming month so we can top up the rehearsals for our next show in September!
p.s. And to all those piano students out there, Oriana sends a friendly suggestion to be kind and light with those Middle C, E and G piano keys! 😉
