Burke H.S. Students Decorate Street Piano

Alisa Rodny, our MAT alumna who teaches at Jeremiah Burke High School, and her students have decorated one of the public pianos which are being placed around Boston for anyone to play.  The piano they worked on will be placed at Franklin Park Zoo, near the zebra entrance, in Dorchester.

Play Me, I’m Yours is an arts project by artist Luke Jerram.  When the project goes live in Boston on September 27, over 1000 street pianos will have been installed in 37 cities across the globe, bearing the simple invitation to Play Me, I’m Yours!

The Street Pianos Festival in Boston runs from September 27 to October 14, 2013 and will include several solo and ensemble performances.
