Town alive with sound of music

Have your say

VISITORS to Rotherham tried their hand at tinkling the ivories.

Pianos from the Urban Pianos project were brought in from the cold and given new homes as part of the Rotherham Open Arts Festival Fringe’s busking day.

The reclaimed and customised pianos found homes in the Passion Cafe, Sophisticakes Tea Shop, the RAIN Building, The Antiques Centre, Imperial Buildings , Whistle Stop Sweet Shop and the Old Market Gallery.

Composer Joshua Goodman, wrote a simple piece and encouraged locals to have a play.

He said: “There was a fantastic level of interest and I was amazed how creative Rotherham people were with the piano.”
