In partnership with: pianos.pt
Supported by: Infraestruturas de Portugal

For five days, five pianos will be scattered around several of the city’s parks and squares with everyone free to play whatever they feel like. The challenge is extended to any other instruments you might like to bring along.

There are many ways to surprise passers-by with spontaneous mini-concerts and everyone’s welcome to join in. In a city which is increasingly home to a mixture of cultures and languages, music (as a universal language) makes immediate communication between people easier. The pianos are out there, and each one, with its 88 notes, holds infinite melodies to discover.

21st April – Praça José Fontana Bandstand, Jardim da Estrela Bandstand, Largo da Graça Bandstand and Jardim da Parada/Jardim Teófilo Braga Bandstand (Campo de Ourique).
