Piano Day, an annual worldwide event founded by a group of likeminded people, takes place on the 88th day of the year – in 2021 it’s the 29th March – because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated.Every year, the 88th day of the year is declared World Piano Day to celebrate the King of Musical Instruments. Today is that day? Why? There are 88 keys on a conventional piano.
The first Piano Day was in 2015. Since then the “festival” has gone from strength to strength. This year is its 7th anniversary. And it has enjoyed the participation of pianists, venues, promoters, organizers, manufacturers, retailers and distributors, technicians, piano enthusiasts, in fact, anyone associated with the instrument.
"Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.
The aim of the day is to create a platform for piano related projects in order to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano. Piano Day welcomes all kinds of piano lovers — young and old, amateur and professional, of any musical direction – to join in. It is intended to be the most joyful of all holidays!
