SUSPENDED – Dortmund (DE) – Spiel Mich 2020 – expect 14 pianos – dates TBC
June 14, 2020 - July 12, 2020
Too bad and sorry to read, but today, May 22nd 2020 🙁 Spiel Mich Dormund announced on their Facebook that the 2020 edition of their annual promotion will not take place… Here’s the announcement in German:
“Aufgrund der öffentlichen Beschränkungen bezüglich der covid 19 Pandemie kann Spiel-Mich in Dortmund in diesem Jahr 2020 leider nicht stattfinden.“, which translates as: “Due to the public restrictions regarding the covid 19 pandemic, Spiel-Mich cannot take place in Dortmund this year 2020”
Not a single doubt in the world they’ll be back, once this is all behind us! 🙂
14 pianos in Dortmund and played none of them. Shame on us! We played quite a few multi-piano Events in Germany but we’ve yet to check in at Dortmund.
About the Pianos
- Some Spiel Mich cities will use brand new pianos without artwork, where others (like Dortmund) have their local artists and communities work on those pianos with passion and creativity. Dortmund offers a bit of both.
- More than in the US, Spiel Mich usually assigns pianos to shopkeepers or other property operators. Upside is that they’ll be the best buddies you could imagine to “their” piano. Hence, you’ll find pianos in above-average condition, which is great! Downside is that whenever de shop closes, the piano is stored inside and no longer playable for the day. Add to that some German cities keep their shops closed on Sundays, so plan you trip if you go out there to play.
About the Venue/Event
Kindly check the venue link below. We love to play in Germany in general with nice people, lots of skilled players and interested bystanders.
About the Organizer
“Spiel Mich” (German language for Play Me) is a series of local initiatives throughout Germany. We haven’t found a linking pin yet between those organizations, but for sure they’ve been inspired by one another. Since we’ve played quite a few of these Events over the years, we can assure you that we’ve met the same German piano players in various corners of the country.
