Vacation Hightlights




Holy Batgirl! What is this? Is it a 
bird? Is it a plane? 
No! It's Painted Pianos!!!!




Pianos on Parade or POP is 
program  by Keys 4/4 Kids 
and KCMTA-Kansas City 
Music Teachers Association.
"A local non-profit organization
that sells donated pianos. Profits 
from the sale of the pianos fund
various charitable programs.
KCMTA is celebrating 100 years
of music instruction in Kansas
City.




The pianos are on tour at various
locations--sidewalks, parking lots,
storefronts, movie theater lobby
even a Farmer's Market venue.
The goal of the project is to
"turn sidewalks, parks, store-
fronts into concert halls and
create fun ares for people to 
stop and play."






Check out the knitted feet on the 
bench. Most of the pianos have 
been painted by kids and 
professional artists.

Enjoy!














I must interrupt here to say
This is my FAVORITE of the
ones we've found so far.
Love the Farm Theme. 
This was the one we found 
at the Farmer's Market 
venue.




So creative!





Oh


so




CUTE!!!



















We still have more to find.
There are rumored to be 
around 100 popping up in
and around the city!


Hope you enjoyed the 
Parade!

~Keep on Dreaming~

  2. What fun! Definitely hard to choose a favorite, though I'm leaning to the one with the turtle. Have a sweet Sunday!
