Pianos in Orange for National Piano Month

September is National Piano Month.  This piano immediately caught my eye when Stratoz and I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show in 2009.  The theme was jazz, and featured this amazing Steinway with orange keys and an art glass top created by Dale Chihuly. Witnessing glass art was one of the reasons I became an artist.

On a whim I searched for “orange piano” and the Orange Piano Tour appeared.  German musician Stefan Aaron takes an orange upright piano to a different country each year, from the Great Wall of China, the Swiss Alps, the Munich airport in Germany, and the top of the Landmark Tower in Yokohama, Japan in 2015.  Check out the Munich Airport Soca and the Magic Carpet.
