The Piano Place Donates The Famous "Street Piano"

The Piano Place Donates The Famous "Street Piano"

The Piano Place proudly donated a piano to Music Shapes. Music shapes had the magnificent idea to turn this donated piano into a "street piano" but formally called Kaleidoscope Keys. so all of the piano components were weatherized and rebuilt to withstand the weather changes. Music Shapes’ founders Barrett and Derek Steinhoff, who are also piano technicians, completed this process.

Jeanne Barrett (pictured above) stated “The name of the piano is Kaleidoscope Keys. One, being an engineer, I just love geometry and spirographs and kaleidoscopes — and I have a collection of them — so it is just a fun theme to have”.

This piano is available for anyone to enjoy and is located at: 407 Pine St., Rochester, MI 48307
