Julie Plays Government Center! Street Pianos | Boston: 2013

There’s an incredible event going in Boston—”Play Me, I’m Yours”—I got to 6 pianos, here’s me on the only baby grand in exhibit, there’s 75 all over the city and surrounding neighborhoods, for anyone to play! See info below.

Piano @ City Hall Plaza, Government Center:

(This poor piano, pedal needs some WD40, and keys were sticky and spongy—@ 0:18 you can see me pick that E key back up! I think it got rained on, several of the ivory keytops fell off while I played!)

And check out this girl playing Linus and Lucy!


And this boy playing Linus and Lucy too!

Love this boy in the fedora playing “Take Five” by Brubeck:

And this pianist’s playing takes my breath away, can you name the piece?

First Look @ “Street Pianos Boston” Which Begins Tomorrow!

I’m so excited about this art/”sound” installation; 75 pianos painted by local artists will be placed on the streets of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville and other Boston area neighborhoods for absolutely anyone  to play! All the pianos hit the streets tomorrow, Friday, September 27. Here’s the map, with a lot of pianos already in their locations; click on the icons to see the piano and its location!

Field Trip Anyone??

One mom and her son from my studio are already on board to go to this event with me, we were thinking it would be fun to have other students/parents join us, and either taking the train in from Gloucester station, or all piling into a mini van/SUV.

So parents, if you’re interested, contact me so we can plan a mutually convenient date (Sat/Sun); the event runs from Sep 27 through October 14. Adult students, please join us too! And any other friends too! 🙂 Can’t wait, it’s going to be a great piano adventure.

Here’s some pics of some of the pianos out already:

This one's in Boston Common!
