Oakville residents and visitors are invited to create their own musical moment by playing a tune on brightly-coloured pianos popping up in various outdoor locations from August 15 to 31, 2016.

The town’s Musical Moments project, in partnership with Merriam Music, is a simple and creative way for the community to engage with arts and culture while showcasing their own musical talent.

Six pianos, painted by Oakville youth attending summer camps and the Oakville Children’s Festival, will be placed at Towne Square, Westwood Park, Coronation Park, Bronte Village, and Glen Abbey and Iroquois Ridge community centres.

Piano players of all ages and abilities are encouraged to share a video of their musical performance on Merriam Music’s Facebook page,, using #OakvilleMakesMusic for a chance to win great prizes. The contest runs from August 15 to 31, 2016.

Musical Moments is part of the Town of Oakville’s Summer Cultural Connection events series.
