The accessibility mode increases the contrast for people with visual problems.


Throughout the summer, passers-by will be invited to fill downtown with the strains of music by taking a few moments to play their favourite melody on the piano that will be set up for them.

Through this initiative, the City of Saint-Lambert hopes to:

  • Provide a free cultural installation for citizens;
  • Facilitate exchanges between amateur and professional artists;
  • Forge bonds within the Saint-Lambert community; 
  • Stimulate, develop and maintain an interest for Saint-Lambert’s cultural vitality;
  • Encourage citizen participation.

Hours

The piano may be played at Gordon Park from July 3 to September 27, 2020:

  • Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
  • Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.;
  • Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The piano will be closed on holidays and if there is a high risk of rain (60% risk of precipitation and more).

Rules

  • To allow everyone to have a turn at the piano, if other people are waiting to play, a maximum of 10 minutes per musician is permitted.
  • In case of rain, the public is asked to cover the piano with the tarpaulin provided.
