#PlayYourPart – Winnipeg has street pianos!

Have you noticed, 7 of these gorgeous pieces of art appeared on the street this week?

Play Your Part Pianos SuperFun
SuperFun, the piano outside of Portage Place

They’re donated pianos, painted by youth & mentoring artists at Studio 393, in 7 completely individual styles as part of a project called Play Your Part. And ALL of them are meant for anyone to come out and play on! You can dust off those rusty piano skills you used to have when you were a kid, or show off to your friends with a talent they never knew you had!

To add to the fun – the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra has given me 3 sets of tickets to their JUNO week Manitoba Rocks concerts next week. The concert’s going to be awesome:

Put four of Manitoba’s best bands alongside the forces of the WSO, and you have a whole new experience at Manitoba Rocks! Imaginary Cities consists of multi-instrumentalist Rusty Matyas and vocalist Marti Sarbit. JUNO Award-winning Nathan Music Co. harnesses the essence of the Canadian Prairies, capturing the modern, old-fashioned sound of the lonesome, crowded west. JUNO-nominated Royal Canoe comes armed with falsettos, guitars, effects pedals, drums, basses, tambourines, shakers and a six-keyboard super-weapon. The Lytics is a five-man crew whose amalgam of old-school soundscapes and boom-box bangers celebrates, inspires and challenges.

And I’m going to give tickets away – anyone who plays one of these pianos and shares it (photo or video, both count) on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #PlayYourPart is entered! I’ll draw one name on Monday, one Tuesday, and one Wednesday of next week.

One thought on “#PlayYourPart – Winnipeg has street pianos!

  1. The former England and recent skipper have had their desires shattered as The A few Lions see two of the most influential players in the final 10 years miss what would
    have possibly been their very last World Cup visual appeal.
    David Beckham who moved to Europe at the switch of the year from Los Angeles to play in Italy for The Rossoneri of
    AC Milan ruptured his Achilles tendon again in March.
    The previous Manchester United and Real Madrid star experienced
    opted to go back to Europe to improve his prospects of generating Fabio Capello ’s 23-gentleman squad.

    It is intriguing to me that even though all of this has been talked about for
    many years, these glitches are nonetheless on-going these days.
    I guess the two human figures symbolizing the topic of “excuses for problems manufactured” are spot on.

    Anytime you hear anyone attempt to discuss about what needs to adjust to
    re-equilibrium the men and women & economies of the African nations
    around the world, you will usually just hear excuses for why it cannot
    ever be fastened. “As well several individuals need help and the world is not ample”.
    “Too numerous different cultures to arrive jointly and unite for the common objective”.
