Welcome to Keys to the Streets!

Keys to the Streets is a project that brings free, playable pianos to the public spaces of Vancouver this summer! Our pianos will be available to play from July 1 to August 24, 2013. A volunteer run operation, this project is inspired by similar pop-up piano initiatives which have appeared in cities such as Montreal, Toronto, and New York.

Keys to the Streets seeks to build upon this spirit of inspiring music and creativity in our urban environment through revisiting the public piano concept in a way that is uniquely supported by Vancouver community organizations. When the program ends in August, these pianos will be donated to their stewarding organizations for indoor enjoyment!

Each piano will be deployed outdoors with a rain cover, bench, and a community stewarding organization that will take care of the piano for the duration of the program. Passersby are also encouraged to slip the included cover onto the piano in the event of foul weather, or during the early evening to be respectful of the environment and to control public noise levels.
