Pforzheim (DE) – Spiel Mich 2021 – expect 13 pianos
June 19, 2021 - July 17, 2021
After the sad but understandable cancellation of their 2020 edition, we’re glad to read the announcement for the June/July 2021 dust-up in Pforzheim! As most Spiel Mich festivals in Germany: well organized and documented on their Facebook site. Very much look forward to play their pianos one day!
About the Pianos
- Some Spiel Mich cities – like Pforzheim – will offer 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. 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.
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. We’d like you to be aware of 3 different Events within a close distance and with overlapping time-lines. We’re certainly thinking about doing this triangle over summer 2021!
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!
