Karlsruhe (DE) – Spiel Mich 2021 – expect 15 pianos – dates TBC
July 6, 2021 - August 8, 2021
Spiel Mich Karlsruhe sadly but smartly, in hind-sight annouced skipping 2020, bringing their pianos back to the streets in summer of 2021. We hope 2021 will be our chance to return to Karlsruhe and play all of their pianos! No exact numbers of pianos known at this time so we’ll keep an eye on their website.
About the Pianos
- Some Spiel Mich cities will use either brand new or 2nd hand pianos without artwork, where others – like Heilbronn – have their local artists and communities work on those pianos with passion and creativity. They show some beauties on their website!
- 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.
These were the locations during the 2019 edition:
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.
Spiel Mich, stay safe and enjoy playing!
