As part of the city’s month-long “Artober” cultural event, the organization is collecting donated pianos and asking local artists to help redesign them. And Launchpad is raising money for the Queen City Piano Project. Organizers intend to schedule events around them when they find their homes in different parks.
“(Visitors) could just go and play spontaneously, or watch a quartet play, or see piano lessons in action,” said Meg Shorette, Launchpad’s Executive Director.
The pianos will eventually be donated to local schools and music education programs at the end of October.
