Special Edition: Collaboration with Archifest 2017 

Newest public pianos under the Esplanade Bridge

We are super happy to once again transform the space under the Esplanade Bridge into a free concert hall with our newest pair of pianos featuring original design by students from Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA)!

These two designs are the winning entries as part of the Archifest 2017 competition by Singapore Institute of Architects and Play it Forward Singapore. These pianos will be displayed under the Esplanade Bridge for public playing round the clock from 7 October to 30 November 2017. Not sure where Esplanade Bridge is?
