Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons, but mostly to celebrate the piano and everything surrounding it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most importantly, the listener. Nils Frahm (founder of Piano Day)
The aim of the day is to create a platform for piano-related projects in order to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano. Piano Day welcomes all kinds of piano lovers young and old, amateur and professional, of any musical direction to join in this year's festivities. It is intended to be the most joyful of all holidays!
