Pianos on Parade presented by PNC Bank

 

enjoy the music this august in mpls downtown

Pianos on Parade presented by PNC Bank will place uniquely designed pianos throughout mpls downtown this June. The program will be open for impromptu concerts as well as for programming with local musical talent.

Each piano is painted by local artists with a downtown mpls theme. Over the past seven years, Pianos on Parade presented by PNC Bank had offered fun and exciting musical performances throughout our downtown community, ranging from music students to prominent local musicians like Kerri Noble, Mark Mallman, The Voice contestant Nicholas David, MN Music Hall of Famer Lorie Line and more. You never know who will be performing downtown!

Plus, take a look at several PDFs with sheet music. Play piano reading music off your phone or mobile device!  The beauty of the Pianos on Parade program is anyone can use the pianos to share their talents with the community. When you see a piano, pull up this sheet music and play!

don’t miss out on the fun

 

Over the past seven years, we’ve had a collection of surprise performances like James “Cornbread” Harris, Phil Thompson, Kerri Noble, Lorie Line, Nicholas David and Mark Mallman, music videos shot by artists Jon Storm and Mark Mallman, and an incredible group of local (and visiting) piano players who shared music daily. Come find a piano and play throughout June!

While you’re here, don’t miss out on the opportunity to share your experience with others. Invite friends, family and colleagues to come with you, and post your photos and videos on social media using the hashtags #pianosonparade and #mymplsdt.

You can learn more by following @mplsdowntown on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
