Community Pianos Are Back!

 Community Pianos Make Music Again
Pianos installed in three downtown locations



Have some musical skills and want to show them off?  Just feel like playing chopsticks on a beautiful summer Danville day? Then come downtown and tickle the ivories as the Town of Danville’s community pianos are back!

With the success of last year’s community piano program, the Town of Danville decided to add a third piano. The three pianos are placed at the Danville Community Center, 420 Front St, the Danville Senior Center, 115 E. Prospect Ave, and Railroad Plaza (corner of Railroad Avenue and W. Linda Mesa.)

In 2018, San Ramon Valley High School students Lauren Torchiana and Katherine Gillen brought the idea of having brightly painted pianos all over Danville for everyone to play to the Recreation, Arts & Community Services Department. Lauren and Katherine invited their friends, Grace McClure and Kelly Anderson, to collaborate on the project. As a result of their hard work, Lauren, Katherine, Grace and Kelly won an Award of Merit at the 2018 at the Town’s Annual Community Service Awards. When approached about the opportunity to design a third piano, all four of these amazing young women jumped at the chance to bring more visual and performing arts to their community.

The Town of Danville encourages residents to make Danville a more musical place. Come down, play a tune, take a photo or video and post it to Instagram. Be sure to tag the Town at either danvilleparksca, livelocallydanville, or townofdanvilleca.

The pianos will be accessible to the public through Labor Day, September 2, 2019.

For more information on the street pianos, contact Cultural Arts and Marketing Supervisor, Jessica Wallner at (925) 314-3426 or jwallner@danville.ca.gov.
