Piano Day Worldwide Celebration

PIANO DAY
March 29, 2019

“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!
