SUSPENDED(??) – Dülmen (DE) – Mach Musik – 2020 – 7 pianos – dates TBC
June 28, 2020 - July 26, 2020
Although not formally announced yet, we expect this year’s edition to Spiel Mich Dülmen to get suspended at some point. Other events in this nice little town have been suspended indeed, but maybe, they’re still considering a different time-window for the year. We’ll keep an extra eye open for you!
Mach Musik (” Make Music”) is becoming an annual party in Germany (Nordrhein-Westfalen), with more to it than “just” pianos. What remains :-): 7 pianos on display that hopefully we’ll play someday!
About the Pianos
- Some Spiel Mich cities – like Dülmen – will use either brand new or 2nd hand pianos without artwork, where others have their local artists and communities work on those pianos with passion and creativity.
- 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
First, check this short movie about the 2019 Event in Dulmen/Duelmen. Elke 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.
