“Why does the world need a Piano Day?

For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm

Piano Day, an annual worldwide gathering of events which takes place on the 88th day of the year because this is the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated. Launched in 2015, more information on www.pianoday.org
That's right, there's a day all about the history and love for pianos.
Is there a greater way to stir your curiosity and allow a new approach to the artistic world than an audiovisual performance around the piano ?!

Next event: March 28, 2024

2020 & 2021 Let's Celebrate Together - Worldwide streaming

Music can orchestrate a piece of life or simply a state of mind. She develops empathy or writing a story. With EC UNDERGROUND, we were lucky and we are glad to present the artists who participated.

ECU has been able to host already 2 shows #livestream with support of the following artists who dedicated time and effort to create “music-dialogues“ to celebrate together this wonderful instrument and its heroes! Support the artists, Share the music you love.
