Piano pilgrims spend a fair amount of time traveling, always looking for new pianos, audiences and fellow pilgrims. Many of those we’ve met or watched playing in real life, some are found online.

We do realize footage below isn’t exclusively about Public Pianos and some of these players aren’t exacly amateurs, but all these moments have a simple thing in common: They bring a smile to our faces, a tear of joy sometimes…

Kindly make sure to drop us a line when there’s an obvious moment of beauty missing!
