Community Piano

The green “Community Piano” travels through schools in Heidelberg as an instrument for all pupils

In spring, the striking green piano was still parked at Heidelberg’s main train station as part of the “re:start” programme as “KlaWIR for all” and was freely played by numerous passers-by. Now the instrument is making a stop at various schools in Heidelberg and the region as a “Community Piano” and invites all students to make music there. It continues the original idea of creating a meeting place for spontaneous and joint music-making.

The first stop will be the Hölderlin Gymnasium, where the piano will then stand until February. The next stations are the St. Raphael Gymnasium in Neuenheim and the International Comprehensive School in Rohrbach, with further schools in the planning stage.

The project will be accompanied by the Classic Scouts, the youth group of Heidelberger Frühling, who will organize the kick-off events for the arrival of the green piano at each school. In addition, concerts and workshops are to be organized with young artists from the region for the respective schools.

The “Community Piano” was initiated by Sara Werneke, the FSJ Kultur worker at Heidelberger Frühling.
