Family starts organization to place pianos across metro Atlanta

Source: WGCL

If you've ever been to Atlantic Station or Chastain Park, changes are you've seen a brightly painted piano just waiting for you to tickle its ivories.

For the last three years, pianos like those have been popping up throughout metro Atlanta. In parks, art centers, even a Presbyterian church.

Jason Brett and his family started Play Me Again Pianos after coming across a similar public display while vacationing in Europe. The Bretts want to place 88 pianos throughout Georgia, one for each key on the piano.

The pianos are donated and volunteer artists transform them.

While these pianos offer music for the soul, Brett says it's also about access to arts education. It's something many Atlanta kids don't have regular access too.

There are currently 15 pianos on permanent display and Nico has played every one.

Annual maintenance for the pianos runs about $500. Play Me Again Pianos is always looking for volunteers and donations.
