Bring a picnic and enjoy live music performed by community members. Every Friday, this summer, at the Cumberland Seniors Park.
AOE Arts Council, Heart of Orléans BIA and the City of Ottawa invite you to the east-end Piano in the Park summer picnic series.
Artist : Alice Yang
Ottawa’s first “piano in the park” was placed in a park in Carp in 2012 and now there are seven pianos in total in parks throughout the city. Nicholas Pope, the founder of Ottawa’s program is to be applauded for bringing more art into our shared spaces.
Pianos in the Park is a wonderful initiative of repurposing donated pianos, collaborating with visual artists and involving music lovers in our communities. Orléans now has an outdoor public piano for all to enjoy.
Want to play on a Friday?
We are looking for volunteer musicians. Participation is open to any age or musical level and can count as high school student volunteering hours.
Do you have a piano that could be sold or donated to the project?
The piano must be a working piano. Pianos in the Park does minor repairs, paint jobs and tuning but needs a piano that is able to be moved and is in playing condition.
