OC Can You Play?
Pacific Symphony and presenting sponsor Yamaha invited Orange County to celebrate the joy of music through OC Can You Play? — a public pianos project.
OC CAN YOU PLAY?
January 16 - February 6
Twenty colorfully painted pianos were installed throughout Orange County for everyone to play and enjoy. Pacific Symphony invited the community to stop by, play their favorite tunes or even create their own Piano Event. From Chopsticks to Chopin, Bach to the Beatles, OC Can You Play? inspired people to reconnect to their musical soul.

Pacific Symphony hosted an "OC Can You Play? Best Video Contest" and received 27 creative entries. Below is one entry by local rock band Melee.
