Orange County symphony does the piano in public places promotion
To promote their upcoming season, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra of Orange County, California, has placed 20 pianos, each painted by local artists, in public places in cities throughout the county. See "Painted pianos take to O.C. streets" from the Orange County Register."
This has been done in London, UK, and New York City as a public art initiative. But I think it's interesting how the local symphony is also using this idea to promote their season and audience building.
Jeff Buenviaje, of Norwalk, holds his 11-month old son Jeff Jr. as he bangs away on a piano at The Block at Orange Monday. Pacific Symphony is sponsoring the "OC Can You Play?" where about 20 pianos are placed in public spaces throughout the county. "Music makes everything better," Buenviaje said. H.
