From July 15-30, Kenmore Town Square will feature a piano as part of Piano in the Parks, a series of events spanning three weeks, focused on bringing communities to area parks each summer for music, magic and more.

The piano was painted by a local artist is will be one of 11 pianos that will be on view throughout Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region.

While the program was founded by Laird Norton Wealth Management, the group will hand over programming and organizing responsibilities to the nonprofit One Reel. Laird Norton will remain as the lead sponsor. Other partners will return from previous years, including Classic Pianos, who will once again provide the pianos, tuning and delivery services for this program.

“We’re excited Pianos in the Parks is now part of the programming One Reel offers the city,” said One Reel executive director Chris Weber in a press release. “We’ve watched this project, which Laird Norton Wealth Management created, inspire so many and we’re honored to keep the music going and create pockets of discovery in parks across our region. It’s going to be great year for Pianos in the Parks, with programs all across the region.”

Weber continued, saying, “Summer’s coming and with music everywhere, there’s no better time to come outside and play!”

Erin Moyer, managing director of marketing and communications for Laird Norton added, “Pianos in the Parks has touched the lives of so many in our region and we’re proud to have played a part in its creation. One Reel has a stellar reputation for arts in Seattle and we’re eager to see where they take the project next.”
