Pianos on State
A favorite event in Santa Barbara, Pianos on State is a collaborative and interactive musical experience. Coinciding with the 2015 New Noise Festival, Pianos on State took place October 8th through October 18th. This was the sixth annual event and is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation, the Downtown Organization, New Noise, the Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative, and the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission. Each piano becomes its own piece of art as local Santa Barbara artists create unique looks. Pianos are available for musical exploration, impromptu play, and planned performances morning, afternoon, and evening over two weekends (10 a.m.-9 p.m. per piano). Always a local favorite, this is truly a fun event. Check out a few videos from last year!
