To all you cats in the LA area, the Street Piano's "Play Me, I'm Yours" tour will be kicking off in LA at noon on April 12th.

"Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, Iím Yours is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram. For three weeks beginning April 12, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra brings Play Me, Iím Yours to Los Angeles. Thirty pianos, designed and decorated by local artists and community organizations, are featured across Los Angeles County and are available for everyone to play, in celebration of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahaneís 15th anniversary as LACO music director. Visit laco.org to learn more about Jeffrey and the Orchestra.
Join us at the piano nearest you on April 12 at 12 noon for the ďlunch launchĒ of Play Me, Iím Yours. Thirty pianists kick off the installation with a simultaneous play-in of Bachís The Well-Tempered Clavier at all 30 pianos. After that, the pianos are available to you and any member of the public to play and enjoy."
Hope you folks have a chance to go out and listen, watch, and even give it a whirl!
