As part of a three-week art installation called "Play Me, I'm Yours," 30 decorated pianos have been placed all over L.A. Taking the installation to its next logical level, the producers of the event are planning a pop-up concert for April 26th at 8:45 p.m. called "Love Letters To L.A.: Pianos Live."

The event will take place around a piano that was placed in the plaza of the Egyptian Theater (the possibilities for alliteration are endless). Over a dozen local musicians will perform, playing songs that remind them of our fair city.

“These pianos bring communities together, and in a city like LA, frequently charged with being disconnected, it’s exactly the kind of project that artists want to celebrate and bring focus to,” said co-producer Morgan Karr in a statement.

Some of the artists who are taking part in the event are Mariah McManus, City Bird, Jess Delgado and Neara Russell.
