Anyone can play at Pianos 'Round Town in Ypsilanti
People in Ypsilanti will soon be tickling the ivories all over town. The second annual “Pianos ‘Round Town” will happen Sept. 9 through 27. Pianos will be placed outside of businesses at 8 locations in Depot Town and downtown Ypsilanti, and anyone can sit down and play.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a piano virtuoso ready to wow passers by with an impromptu concert or if you just want to sit down and see if you remember how to play "Chopsticks." The pianos will be waiting for you.
During business hours, find pianos in Depot Town at Nelson Amos Studio (23 E. Cross Street), Cafe Racer (10 E. Cross Street), Ypsilanti Food Co-op (312 N. River Street), Sidetrack (56 E. Cross Street), and Depot Town Dispensary (35 E. Cross). Downtown, find pianos at Mix (130 W. Michigan Ave.) and B-24 (217 W. Michigan Ave). Closer to campus, find a piano at Tower Inn Cafe (701 W. Cross Street).
If you want to brush up on your piano playing skills, stop into Nelson Amos Studio (23 E. Cross Street) for free piano lessons whenever Korin Hancherlian-Amos is in. The studio is one of the sponsors of the event, along with Steinway Piano Gallery of Detroit, the Ypsilanti CVB, and the Depot Town Association.
