On Thursday, 16 May 2024, the My Urban Piano Luxembourg project was officially launched at Place d'Armes outside Cercle Cité during a ceremony attended by the college of the mayor and aldermen of the City of Luxembourg.

To mark the occasion, Tim de Buyser (14), student of the highest calibre at the Luxembourg City Conservatoire, performed two pieces, namely Passacaglia by Georg Friedrich Händel and Chaconne Op. 2 No. 4, an original composition by Tim de Buyser.

19 pianos across the city

To liven up the streets of the city, 19 pianos will be set up all across town from 16 May to 18 June 2024: you'll find them in the city's public squares, parks, and tourist spots, as well as a range of other places.

Each of these pianos has been decorated by local associations, artists or educational organisations, and constitutes a work of art in itself. All of the pianos are available for anyone to play – whether you're a beginner or a seasoned virtuoso – to fill the air with music in Luxembourg City.

My Urban Piano Luxembourg is an interactive event that takes place every year and is modelled on other annual public piano projects staged in capital cities around the world.

Concerts

Throughout the project, informal concerts are organised and announced on the City of Luxembourg's social media accounts.
