Live Music in Downtown Blacksburg

Visit the venues' website for details

Downtown Piano

The piano is located outside of the Community Arts Information Office at 149 College Avenue. We encourage pianists of all ages and abilities to stop by and play awhile! We do ask that you are gentle with the piano and sensitive to time of day or night , as well as other activities which may be happening.
The downtown piano "project" is brought to you by the Downtown Revitalization Committee.
Thanks to Gregg Moneyhun for donating this piano!

The piano needs some love

Obviously living outside is not conducive to a piano staying in tune so we are getting ready to have it tuned and repaired. If you have enjoyed the many beautiful concerts performed please consider dropping off a small donation to help pay for the upkeep! You can drop off your donation at the Lyric or in the Community Arts Information Office.
Thank you!
