Bristol City Council's Neighbourhood Arts Team will be installing a piano in St Andrews Park for free public access as part of Colston Hall Opening Celebrations in September. The piano will be secured on site to the railings outside the children's play area near the cafe from Friday 4 September until Monday 28 September.
Fay & Karen who run the cafe have agreed to act as custodians during the project and they will be responsible for locking the piano keyboard in the evenings when they lock up the cafe and unlocking them in the morning when they open up so that it can't be played late at night. If you have any concerns or need to report any problems with the piano please email email@example.com and we will deal with it as quickly as possible. We are keen to find a local resident or two who can also help with this task as the cafe doesn't open if it's raining. If you can help out with locking and unlocking the piano please contact me Sally Reay on 07974 684749.
We'd really like to encourage people the play the piano, to organise concerts and performances whilst the piano is in situ. You can find out more about this project including the locations of the other 15 pianos by visiting http://www.bristolpianos.co.uk
. I've also attached some information about this project which you can download and circulate by email.
