One Reel is excited to announce that PIANOS IN THE PLAZA, an intimate version of their Pianos in the Parks programming will be taking place on August 3rd-30th in South Lake Union. This program will temporarily replace Pianos in the Parks, which will be taking a brief hiatus until the summer of 2019.
PIANOS IN THE PLAZA is a collaboration between One Reel and Classic Pianos, and presents a scaled back, temporary alternative to Pianos in the Parks to engage outdoor pianists and enthusiasts this summer while Pianos in the Parks takes the year off.
Classic Pianos has, once again, donated the three pianos on display for the first ever PIANOS IN THE PLAZA. The first is a piano designed by Rachel Sprague that was first introduced at Pianos in the Parks in 2017. The other two were designed exclusively for PIANOS IN THE PLAZA by Tim Detweiler and Joseph Steininger.
“Despite the loss of a major donor, Pianos in the Parks lives on through the support of community partners and private donations! With continued support, we look forward to presenting pianos in public spaces throughout the coming year, culminating in a reimagined Pianos in the Parks in 2019.
PIANOS IN THE PLAZA is the first public spaces event in the series and we are grateful to our longtime collaborator, Classic Pianos, for their unwavering support in bringing this event to life.”
-Marty Griswold, One Reel Executive Director.

Pianos in the Parks, started in 2013, is an annual event that gives the public the chance to see and play beautiful pianos painted by local artists. In past years, the pianos were displayed in various parks and locations around Seattle including Queen Anne’s Kerry Park, 12th Avenue Arts and Seattle Center. Pianos in the Parks is on a temporary hiatus until 2019.
Look for future pianos in public spaces events throughout the year. Until then, visit South Lake Union to enjoy PIANOS IN THE PLAZA, August 3rd – 30th.
