Pianos for Peace Donates Festival Pianos to Atlanta Public Schools

Thanks to Pianos for Peace, a nonprofit organization designed to promote peace and philanthropy through art, music and education, 11 beautifully painted pianos are now located inside Atlanta Public Schools.

Before the arrival of the pianos, the organization invited the Maynard Jackson High School Orchestra and the J.W. Dobbs Elementary School musical ensemble to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport for an unforgettable Closing Ceremony. Passengers from across the globe were delighted by the sounds of the Jackson and Dobbs Jaguars as they moved throughout the busiest airport in the world.
