There is no chosen theme for the piano’s new skin. The wall behind piano, and the piano bench can also be included in the design. The piano will be moved and painted inside City Hall over the winter of 2016. The unveiling of the town piano in its new attire is set for the Chocolate Festival in April, 2016.
Formal applications are located at the town piano itself, City Hall, The Visitor’s Center, Carnegie Hall, and The North House. Applications are due to the North House Museum for review by January 13, 2016
