Pianos have landed!

May 27, 2010
Cotati’s Piano Project invites public to tickle the ivories all day and night

What has 528 keys and can be seen in public at anytime? Why, the Cotati Arts Project’s Piano Project, of course.

Six pianos were placed in front of Cotati businesses Saturday as the installation of the Piano Project culminated with joyous singing, playing and art shows.

One piano is in front of each of six businesses in Cotati: Music to My Ears music school on Gravenstein Highway; Oliver’s Market; Apple Crate gift store; Friar Tuck’s Pub; Knimble Clothing and Knick-Knack; and Cotati Coffee. They are open and waiting to be played by any and all passersby, skilled or not.

Members of the Chamber of Commerce got together for a piano crawl around noon Saturday. The group went from piano to piano, singing and playing the hand-decorated pianos.

The pianos will be featured in the Cotati Jazz Festival June 19, and auctioned off the next day at the Piano Drop Picnic at Larsen’s Feed Store on Highway 116 and Stony Point Road. The money will go to a different nonprofit organization which serves people of Cotati. Since pianos (including tuning and moving) and artwork were donated, 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the nonprofits. Those nonprofits are: Thomas Page PTA/So Co YMCA; Education Foundation; SCAYD; Rotary Club of Rohnert Park-Cotati; Cotati Kids Day; and the Boys and Girls Club.
