Play Me, I'm Yours

Mid-City was the locale for not one, but two pianos in the “Play Me, I’m Yours” program.

Sponsored by the L.A. Chamber Orchestra, the PMIY program furnished 30 pianos in public spaces throughout L.A. County from April 12th to May 3rd.

In this exciting outreach program, that has been staged in 20 cities around the world, pianos were made available in spaces freely accessible to the community.  All ages were encouraged to visit the pianos, plunk out a few notes or a whole concerto, arrange a duo, an elaborate concert or a sing-along-- whatever the music spirits inspire one to do.  With the 30 pianos spread out from San Pedro to Claremont to Panorama, Mid-City was fortunate to have PMIY pianos installed on the front porch of the William Grant Still Art Center, and on the sidewalk outside the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center on the Washington Blvd.  The pianos were first decorated by local artists, with the event kicked-off by a simultaneous concert of Bach’s Preludes at the same time on April 12th on all 30 pianos. The PMIY program is the brainchild of British artist Luke Jerram.
