Piano Day, an annual worldwide event founded by a group of like-minded people, takes place on the 88th day of the year – because of the number of keys on the piano. In 2023, it’s the 29th of March. Three friends from Iceland and Poland: Miro Kepinski, Sævar Jóhannson and Eðvarð Egilsson who are also acclaimed film, theatre and TV composers, are joining together to celebrate that special day, and you are invited!
The day aims to create a platform for piano-related projects to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano. Piano Day welcomes all piano lovers — performers and listeners, young and old, amateur and professional, of any musical direction, to join in and celebrate this wonderful instrument and its music.
