Exhibiting- Car Free Day on Main Street - 2011
June 19, 2011 -- The cold Vancouver day did not stop the Piano Teachers Federation from putting on a performance for Car Free Day on Main Street.
12 local professional piano teachers from the Piano Teachers Federation entertained the audience and passersby with classical, jazz and improvised music.
It’s not every day that you will see a MASON & HAMLIN grand piano in the middle of the street and hear a professional pianist play – for free. Sean Pacey of Pacey’s Pianos on Broadway donated the piano for the event and was happy to greet the thousands of people who stopped by to listen.
The 12 teachers who were kind enough to perform did so out of their love for piano music. Their goal was to promote piano playing and inspire children, teens, adults and seniors of all playing levels. The Piano Teachers Federation is a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting piano teachers and helping students find the right teacher for them.
