Alanna’s back, and we can’t wait! The Street Piano Concert series is honoured to present again rising star Alanna Sterling, aka Twitch streamer “MermaidUnicorn”, aka Merms, a gender-fluid singer-songwriter and mental illness advocate. If you were at last year’s Pride Parade Afterparty, you’ll know why we’re so excited to have such an extraordinarily talented and engaging performer join us for another afternoon of fun at the Street Piano.

The concert begins after the North Grenville Public Library’s Pride Storytime Hour, with special guest drag queen Jordana Myles. Come early (1pm) for stories and dancing in the library, then head on out to the terrace and keep on dancing for Alanna’s show!

What is a Street Piano? It’s a piano placed in a public area that encourages passersby to stop and play.

Why a Street Piano? Who is it for? Street Pianos draw pedestrians, turning any location into a concert venue/cultural hub. By giving residents an instrument to play together, this project encourages locals to share their knowledge, initiate their own ‘play’, and create relationships, setting a precedent for positive experiences in Kemptville’s public spaces and inviting foot traffic to downtown businesses.

When and where are the concerts taking place? This year, the concert series takes place on Saturday afternoons at 2pm from June to the end of August at the North Grenville Public Library. Check the Kemptville Street Piano Facebook page for regular updates on all things Street Piano, including indoor locations in case of rain, concert details, and access to the Street Piano calendar.
