Saied Music Company Encourages Community to ‘Play Me, Tulsa!’
Tulsa, Oklahoma retailer and NAMM Member, Saied Music Company, has launched a colorful, new initiative: Play Me, Tulsa!
The family-owned, full-line music store found that they often become the final resting place for older pianos. As a result, the team at Saied Music Company decided to bring new life to the instruments by partnering with the Tulsa Mayfest to create the new initiative which inspires the community with impromptu opportunities to play the piano throughout the city.
Working with different art departments from local area school districts, a total of 12 pianos were colorfully reimagined through the donations of paint from Anchor Paint and made their debut at the Mayfest 2019, a festival that aims to bring ‘arts and experiences to Tulsa.’ The pianos, which can be found at sites such as Gathering Place, Tulsa’s Riverfront Park, the North Mabee Boys & Girls Club of America, and other local restaurants, retail spaces, and outdoor venues are set to remain in their locations throughout Tulsa until the end of July.
Saied Music Company established the arts initiative with a goal “to provide a fun and impactful way to foster community engagement in both art and music.” With the belief that music has the power to unite, encourage, and inspire, Saied Music Company was founded in 1946 with a mission to encourage and inspire the community to make music.
