Tickle Those Ivories!

Uploaded by Maria Rubio (New England Conservatory, Huntington Ave/Gainsborough St)
Don't know if you've heard about "Play Me, I’m Yours", an art project by artist Luke Jerram. Since 2008, over 1000 street pianos have been installed in 37 cities across the globe, bearing the simple invitation to Play Me, I’m Yours! The Celebrity Series of Boston is sponsoring the event here, running through October 14th.

75 pianos located in public spaces in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline are available for anyone to play and enjoy. All day today, the NE Conservatory's piano, located at the corner of Huntington and Gainsborough, will be played by the school's students, faculty, and staff -- rumor has it, there might even be free lessons for interested spectators.

Tonight, from 6:30 to 7:30,  Skye Schulte, the artist who painted the Prudential Center piano, will host a concert there.   Should be fun.
