Pianodrome brings new meaning to ‘unusual venue.’
Everyone’s on the lookout for a unique venue. And this month in Edinburgh, an unusual gathering spot struck a chord. Literally.
Built from 50 pianos that were going to be destroyed, the Pianodrome was a small amphitheatre that could seat up to 100 people. It was created at Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The performance project’s motto is “Pianos are like people … No piano is junk and no person is ‘unmusical.’” While the Scotland run has ended, there are plans to take the Pianodrome on tour to other locations in the United Kingdom.
