Limoilou public piano washed out

Piano-keys
Quebec City (Quebec) August 5, 2014 – At the beginning of the summer it was decided to install two pianos out in public areas where anyone could sit down and start to play, a trend which has become very popular around the world. Of the two pianos that were set up in Quebec City, one in Limoilou, and one downtown at L’Eglise St Roch, the Limoilou piano has unfortunately succumbed to the elements and has been so soaked by rain in the last few weeks that it is no longer playable. Built mostly out of plywood, and being situated where passing vehicles could splash it from a puddle close by, the poor instrument has warped and split to the point of no return.

The particular piano has been very popular for the neighbourhood and had so called musicians using it on a daily basis. It had even become a gathering place for many of the locals on the warm summer nights where people would sing along to some of the participants’ music.

Now obviously the borough is looking for a new instrument to replace the old one and they would prefer to have one made from solid wood instead of plywood. Most pianos are made from solid wood.

The gentleman in charge of the project for Limoilou is Phillippe Bourque, and he would really like to hear from anyone who has an older piano they would like to get rid of or donate to the cause.

Through monlimoilou.com you can offer your piano or suggestions to help out.

They will look after getting it and installing it. They are debating whether or not they should perhaps install it somewhere other than its present location; someplace more suitable and protected from the elements.
