KUAF Arts Beat: On the 88th Day of the Year, a Chance to Celebrate the Piano

Mar 29, 2019

Amos Cochran performs inside the Firmin-Garner performance studio for "Piano Day."

A piano has 88 keys, so it makes sense that the 88th day of the year should be when we celebrate this versatile instrument. German composer and sound artists Nils Frahm launched a "Piano Day" initiative to spur conversations and activities of all things piano to happen each year on this day, which happens to be March 29 in 2019.

KUAF took part in this international day by inviting local pianist and composer Amos Cochran into the Firmin-Garner performance studio to play and discuss all things piano. Listen to the full segment with this on-demand stream.
