“Celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most importantly, the listener.”

Nils Frahm, Founder of Piano Day

Reframe, rethink and reimagine the piano. 

The Opera House plays host to an extraordinary range of piano performances every year – from classical concertos, to the avant-garde, to legendary moments in pop.

Piano Day celebrates all dimensions of the instrument, creating a platform for all piano related projects, celebrating everything from the piano itself, the performers, composers, builders & the listener.
