“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm
Piano Day, an annual worldwide event which takes place on the 88th day of the year - this year that’s on the 29th of March - because this is the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated. More information on www.pianoday.org
