The Keys to the Streets public piano project is launching again this year on July 1, placing numerous pianos in public areas across the city and open to anyone who wishes to play.

The pop-up musical initiative placed 10 pianos across Vancouver in 2014 in locations including Canada Place, Stanley Park, Dude Chilling Park and False Creek. While there is no word yet where the 2015 instruments will go, the trend is to keep them in busy areas with space around for people to gather.

The pianos are not monitored 24/7, so CityStudio, the program behind Keys to the Streets, counts on the good graces of the public to keep them in shape. They also encourage people to play the pianos only between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. as to not disturb neighbours.

Stay tuned for a list of locations soon, and polish up those tunes!
