Piano reaches summit of Grouse Mountain

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      On the weekend, I spotted two young men playing a piano behind the False Creek Community Centre.

      It was placed there by CityStudio Vancouver as part of its Keys to the Streets project.

      IThta's not the only effort to get keyboards in front of the public this summer. There's also a Pianos on the Street program.

      The president of Pacey's Pianos, Sean Pacey, has been placing these instruments all over the Lower Mainland over the past three weeks as part of this effort.

      Pianos have appeared at Surrey Central Station, the River Market in New Westminster, and Lonsdale Quay.

      Today, he took a piano up the Grouse Mountain gondola to enable people to tickle the keyboards on the summit.

      Pianos on the Street is offering a $400 prize to people who upload a winning video.

      They'll also qualify for a chance to play with the North Shore's orchestra, Lions Gate Sinforia.
