It's not the last we'll hear of Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia

Paseo de Gracia will be filled with pianos

3 July

Barcelona's iconic avenue El Paseo de Gracia will play host to a series of grand pianos, which we will make available to all those who wish to come and play them. It will be a day to enjoy the activity that our founder, Jesús Serra Santamans, was so passionate about: improvising melodies on the piano, to the delight of those who, while not daring to play, choose to listen. This activity is part of the 65th edition of the Maria Canals International Music Competition, which will take place in March.

The original idea of placing grand pianos in central areas of different cities so that anybody who wishes can play them was put into practice by the Maria Canals International Music Competition a few years ago and was first carried out in Madrid in 2012 with our support. Thanks to its extraordinary success, the idea has been expanded to other towns and cities.
