Music to my ears!

ScooterBob arrived in Victoria in July, and summer has proven to be a busy time for me!  Work, teaching, vacation, and a more than a few computer challenges  which have all gotten in the way of blogging!

ScooterBob and I went to explore the art pianos that are positioned around Victoria, usually by the waterfront.  These pianos are part of an art project called the Colour of Music, they are painted by local artists, who are inspired to bring art to public places and for music lovers to enjoy.  After the summer season pianos are they are auctioned off.

ScooterBob and I, hit up a few of these beautiful pianos and caught a very touching moments.

We were even treated to a concert by one gentleman, who goes around to each art space piano to play them, and he said  "Each has it's own personality".  

The piano we found him at is his favourite!

It was such a great day to sit in the sun and soak up beautiful music from experts
 And not so experts.

It was amazing to see the joy the pianos brought to everyone who was playing, or strolling or rolling by.


  1. Dar, a fantastic destination and Post!! Bob would have loved to join you on this one.

  2. Public pianos are a great initiative. I wonder how well they cope with rain. Are they shrouded?

  3. They are tarped when it rains.
