"My Urban Piano": pianos to share in the capital city

The 'My Urban Piano' project is back in Luxembourg City. The 5th edition will come to an end on 17th June.

05-urbanpianoIf you've been hearing classical music tunes in the streets of Luxembourg City, it's because the "My Urban Piano" project is back. Every year, in early summer, this initiative is given a new life for a month. This year, it's on from 31st May to 17th June.

Around twenty pianos all over Luxembourg City invite passers-by to play freely on these instruments made available to the general public, whether at the airport, in a park, in a churchyard or simply on a large public square.

Each passer-by - who is an amateur or skilful musician - can create mini concerts by making the capital city resound to piano tunes and creating a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.

Free-access instruments, decorated among others by youth centres, shelters, schools and associations of the City, create a buzz and generally contribute to putting people in a good mood. Each piano is a work of art in itself, blending into its urban environment. The closing concert will be held at 3 pm on Sunday, 17th June, on Place Guillaume.
