This summer, Flower Piano returns to the San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park from July 11 to 22. Now in its fourth year, this music-filled event features a dozen pianos placed in dramatic locations throughout the 55-acre garden for anyone to play. Pianos are available to the public to play between 9 am and 6 pm every day, except during scheduled performances. Free after garden admission.
Weekends also include several family-friendly events from a character scavenger hunt by Rabbit Hole Theater to music-themed Story Times and special Bean Sprout Family Days in the Children’s Garden.
A new, ticketed event for families, Flower Piano at Sunset, features performances by the Little Mission Studio Chorus and Chamber Ensemble, Charity Kahn, music classes for toddlers, and a young talent showcase that offers musicians ages 12 and under a chance to sign up and perform as a featured guest artist that night. Tickets for Flower Piano at Sunset are $40.
New this year also, the Community Music Center offers free, 20-minute mini lessons for beginners ages 12 and up, weekdays July 16-18 between 3-6pm. Reservations for lessons will be available online starting July 5 and in person as well.
