Pianos in the streets Madrid

Madrid is filled with pianos

October 24

On Thursday, October 24, Madrid will accommodate the grand pianos (a total of ten, this time around) that we will make available to those who wish to play them.

It will be a day where everybody will have the chance to enjoy the activity that our founder, Jesús Serra Santamans was so passionate about: improvising piano melodies to the delight of those that, without venturing to play, are willing to listen. This initiative is part of the 64th edition of the Maria Canals International Music Competition, which take place in March.

The original idea of placing grand pianos in central areas of different cities so anybody who wishes can play them was promoted by the Maria Canals International Music Competition a few years ago and was first carried out in Madrid in 2012 with our support, and thanks to its extraordinary reception, this idea has spread out to other towns and cities. Besides, our intention is to take them to as many places as possible, and with this goal in mind, this year the event will be held in Barcelona, on March 23 and León, on June 28.
