Thanks to all of the piano players (and one fiddler) who performed yesterday at the grand opening concert for Takoma Park’s new public piano! We had a great turnout at the downtown gazebo.

WDVM 25 also aired a great story about the concert where you can hear some of the music and learn some background about the donated piano’s journey to the gazebo.┬áThe piano, which was painted by local artist Zahava Frank, will be in the gazebo until December where anyone can play it from 9 am to 9 pm daily.

The public piano is one of the projects organized by the City of Takoma Park’s Takoma Park Arts cultural series. We also host many events at the Takoma Park Community Center, including art exhibitions, concerts, film screenings, theater, poetry readings and more. All of the events are free, and you can learn more about them and sign up for our weekly e-newsletter at www.takomaparkmd.gov/arts.
