We rescue pianos and put them on the street for everybody to enjoy.
Piano. Push. Play. began with two objectives: to give the public a new, exciting way to share their talent and hard work,
and to give the public a chance to experience music outside of the typical concert hall.
This outreach project is about developing more ways for people to see, hear and enjoy the piano in action. It began as a pop-up concert series with one piano on one street corner -- created to break down the barrier between performers and audience members, between professional musicians and students, amateurs and those who just enjoy listening.
We want to give pianists more opportunities to play for the public.
Our Next Event:

Concert with Elizabeth Rusch and David Saffert

Kick-Off Concert, Then Out On The Streets
Friday evening, June 30th, a standing-room-only crowd met the 2017 pianos, listened to a great of line up of performers (both professional and volunteer), and spent time into the dusk playing music for each other.
We believe that by exposing people to the visual and auditory experience of the piano,
we are reminded of how magical and vital music is.
