It is time for the fourth unveiling of the Hyde Park Piano Project! Join us from 12:00 – 3:30PM on June 3rd at the Storm Water Management Pond at 1695 Hyde Park Road. This year we are uniting the Piano Project with Canada’s 150th Celebration where local talent participates in showcasing arts and music in the park. We are joining forces with the 100 in 1 Day global festival put on by the Urban League of London helping inspire our community to come together and participate in our community building celebrations.
The 100 in 1 Day – is a global festival of citizen engagement and is happening for the first time in London! All of these events are free for citizens to get involved in. Check out the 100 in 1 Day website for more details and more events happening in London.
The Piano Project will be making this beautifully painted piano available for the Community to come and play during the seasons of Spring, Summer and Fall for everyone’s enjoyment. The piano represents sustaining community public art, culture, vibrancy, and fun. What better way to spend time out in nature with the whimsical experience of art and sound!
There will be all kinds of fun activities happening for people of all ages, during the unveiling of the piano this year, as a community, we will sing O’ Canada! There will also be a number of other things happening that day including; singing performances, a puppet show, vendor tables – representing businesses of Hyde Park, food trucks, and the Fire Department will be on hand as well. There will also be opportunities to win prizes and learn about the growing and thriving Hyde Park community.
The HPBA was granted funding to support other events happening in the area. This includes funding for the West Park Church’s fireworks celebration and hosting the North West London Resource Centre ‘s distribution of ice cream to those attending the piano project. We greatly look forward to your attendance and participation in helping contribute to building a joyous Community by celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday and the Piano Project . This will be a day filled with singing, dancing, music, food, and lots of fun. See you all there!
