Posted on June 18, 2019 in Media Releases
(St. Louis- June 18, 2019) – St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) is joining more than a dozen venues across St. Louis with a temporary piano installation by the local nonprofit organization Make Music St. Louis. The public pianos have been installed around the city in time for international Make Music Day celebrations on June 21. The Airport’s piano has a custom painted octopus theme and is located in Terminal 2 across from gate E33.
“Make Music Day is a city-wide celebration of music where anyone and everyone is invited to either join and play music, or host performances,” said Nika Leoni and Kathy Favazza, Founding Directors of Make Music St. Louis. “The music festival began in France in 1982 and is now celebrated in more than 1000 cities in 120 countries on June 21.”
Passengers of all ages and music experience are encouraged to sit down and share their tunes on the STL Make Music Piano before or after they arrive on their flight. The Make Music Day STL festival is a highlight of the mission for Make Music St. Louis which is to bring the community a wide variety of music performances, events and educational projects aimed at cultivating the appreciation, taste, and love of the musical arts.
The Make Music Piano at STL is sponsored by Jackson Pianos. Passengers will be able to play on the piano all summer long, through Labor Day holiday week.
The Airport recently introduced its own permanent “Play Me” piano in Terminal 1, at the Aero stage across from Starbucks. That piano is part of the Airport’s Lambert Art & Culture Program.
