2022 Summer Season Report

The first summer season of the OneSound Piano Project was a rousing success! In our inaugural year (2022), ten pianos were painted by local visual artists and placed in public spaces for everyone to enjoy. Talented musicians and community members enjoyed making music in public spaces throughout the region, while site partners noticed increased engagement and visits to their facilities. Based on phone tracking systems, we estimate that more than 650,000 people viewed and passed by the pianos, in addition to hundreds of thousands at the airport!
