First, let's all take a moment to appreciate our new poster by Tamir Karta. Amazing, no? OK, whew, let's continue, there's a lot to tell...
First, the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development has renewed our grant, so once again we'll be bringing pianos to the ever-evolving Central Market area, and this year, expanding a bit beyond that.
In June, we'll have a presence at the San Francisco International Arts Festival at Fort Mason.
The Santa Clara Parks Department has just asked us to once again bring Sunset Piano to their Pianos in Parks event in the summer.
And finally, we're going to launch a huge event in July we're calling Flower Piano. For two weeks, the Botanical Garden inside Golden Gate Park will partner with Sunset Piano to bring twelve pianos and a host of amazing performers to its idyllic settings. It's the Garden's 75th anniversary, and Sunset Piano is going to be a featured part of the celebrations. This is kind of a big deal for us, more information coming soon!
We're working on a couple of other really great things too, but for now, you can plan on seeing a lot of Sunset Piano coming through the fog, once the weather warms up a bit. Like we said, keep an eye on our Happenings page and join us on Facebook for the latest news and such.
Twelve Pianos: The Film
The feature length documentary of Sunset Piano, Twelve Pianos, is now in its last big push of editing. Other processes like color work, sound editing, titles and animation will still need to happen, but we're hoping that this film will see the light of day (or a screen in a darkened theater) later this year.
