Performers to come together in support of Keys to the Streets
If you've spent time in Vancouver during the summer in the last few years, you've probably seen the pianos that sit at various locations across the city. Maybe you've even tickled the ivories yourself on occasion.
Keys to the Streets, the great program that placed those painted pianos across the city for all to enjoy, is holding its first ever event.
On Monday July 11, performers will gather at the Woodwards Atrium for Keys to the Streets: Woodwards Summer Jam Session.
The jam session will feature local performers like Willa, Dan Moxon of the Bend Sinister, Colour the Wild, Tariq, Star Captains, Michaelis Nave, and Dominique Fricot.
They'll all be taking turns at the vibrantly painted piano in the atrium, and a surprise celebrity guest is expected to make an appearance to wind the event up.
All these great performers are joining together, with the support of Westbank, to raise money for maintaining the 10 pianos that Keys to the Streets has placed across Vancouver.
The event will also introduce a new piano – the Imagine piano – inspired by John Lennon’s song, Imagine and painted by local First Nations artist, Zola.
