ATLANTA - Next time you’re at the Plaza at Colony Square, listen closely for the twinkling of piano keys. And if you’re in the mood to make a little music yourself, don’t be afraid to sit down and tickle the ivories while you’re there!
Non-profit organization Play Me Again Pianos recently installed a free, public piano at the Plaza at Colony Square, the latest step in its mission to place 88 of them through Metro Atlanta. Representatives say the goal is to connect people to the arts by giving them an opportunity to sit down and play a piano, wherever they may be in the city. The Colony Square piano was painted by artist Max Lebven, and also named by the artist, who decided to call it Harmony. Public pianos can also be found at the Chastain Park Playground and The Woodruff Arts Center. The Dunwoody Nature Center is next on the list to receive one.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent many years taking piano lessons (really, he did!) – so he decided to brush up on his skills a little bit and check out the new public piano at Colony Square.
