I happened to be walking along Notre Dame Street West when I heard someone playing a pretty tune on a piano. Following the music, I came upon a small park with a piano set in the middle. It seems that Montreal has designated some areas for public pianos and Montreal’s own jazz great, Oliver Jones, donated this particular piano in Parc Sainte-Cunegonde. The public, from beginners to accomplished pianists, are invited to play from 10 a.m. to 8p.m. every day. What a lovely idea!
The portrait of Oliver Jones was painted by Arly Padan.
