It's not the last we'll hear of Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia

Paseo de Gracia will be filled with pianos

Barcelona's iconic avenue El Paseo de Gracia hosted a series of grand pianos, which we were make available to all those who wish to come and play them. It was a day to enjoy the activity that our founder, Jesús Serra Santamans, was so passionate about: improvising melodies on the piano, to the delight of those who, while not daring to play, choose to listen. This activity is part of the Maria Canals International Music Competition.

The original idea of placing grand pianos in central areas of different cities so that anybody who wishes can play them was put into practice by the Maria Canals International Music Competition a few years ago and was first carried out in Madrid in 2012 with our support. Thanks to its extraordinary success, the idea has been expanded to other towns and cities. 


The meeting take place on 31 May 2024 in Barcelona.
