San Francisco Botanical Garden
Jul 13, 2017 - Jul 24, 2017

Flower Piano is back for its third year from July 13-24, 2017, celebrating music, nature, and creativity. In collaboration with Sunset Piano the Garden will once again be filled with music, for you and by you!

Flower Piano is a 12–day long community event where 12 pianos are placed at dramatic, picturesque locations throughout the Garden’s 55 acres for anyone to play. Featured performances by over 30 renowned local and international musicians as well as additional programming take place at select times on the weekends. In addition, on Friday, July 21, from 4-6 p.m., San Francisco Botanical Garden will partner with Community Music Center (CMC) to celebrate the Summer of Love in song! CMC’s Billy Philadelphia will lead a lively sing-along featuring some of the greatest hits of 1967, including “Happy Together” by The Turtles, “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, “Somebody To Love” by Jefferson Airplane and “All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles.. We hope you’ll join us for a truly unique San Francisco event in the Garden.
