Happy World Piano Day 2021!

Recommended Posts

Every year one day is set aside to celebrate the “king of musical instruments” — the piano. The chosen day is always the 88th of the year (there being 88 keys on a conventional piano). So this year Piano Day falls on March 29th. 

Piano Day is the brainchild of German pianist and composer Nils Frahm. His idea was to celebrate the instrument across the world through performances, masterclasses, lectures, etc… all manner of events.

The first Piano Day was in 2015. Since then the “festival” has gone from strength to strength. This year is its 7th anniversary. And it has enjoyed the participation of pianists, venues, promoters, organizers, manufacturers, retailers and distributors, technicians, piano enthusiasts, in fact, anyone associated with the instrument.

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.
