Living the San Francisco Dream


Flower Piano 2017 in Golden Gate Park

Flower Piano is back for it's third year

Flower Piano, SF Botanical Garden

This joyful event, a collaboration between Sunset Pianos and the San Francisco Botanical Garden, celebrates music, nature and creativity and is FREE to San Francisco residents, with a nominal $8.00 charge for entrance to the Botanical Garden for other visitors.

Dates in 2017 are July 13 - 24. For a full schedule of planned concerts and more information, click on Flower Piano and scroll toward the bottom.

Wander through the beautiful gardens of the San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park and discover where 12 pianos have been tucked into picturesque spots in beautiful garden settings. Strands of music in the air will lead you to one piano after another. Stroll from spot to spot, enjoying the music, and create your own. The pianos are there for your enjoyment, with some planned concerts and open playing for others, young and old alike.

This is a must-do event for me, and might become one for you, too.


--- Come for a visit; Stay for a lifetime!

Flower Piano is a delight, Kathleen Daniels - I'll be there on Sunday 7/16, in the afternoon - any chance you'll be cooling off in SF that day?

I would love to attend Flower Piano but I need to stick close to Sacramento for a while when I get back, and I'm still in Hawaii. What a cool event, though, Lottie. Paul up above there might have read about this from you before, but I have not.

Hello Grant Schneider and Sharon Tara  Flower piano is somehow magical. Fun event!

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS - Flower Piano is delightful. I'm bringing a couple of clients with us this year, and letting others know.

Hello Paul S. Henderson, CRS, REALTOR®, - this is third year for Flower Piano at the botanical garden. I went last year and wrote about it; now I'm getting the word out for the 2017 dates. It's fun!

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - events like Flower Piano are some of the little unexpected things that add to the joy of living here. Maybe you'll be in town next year. Meanwhile, enjoy Hawaii.

Brian England - Flower Piano makes for a delightful afternoon. You'll see and hear all sorts of pianists, from 5 year olds, to very accomplished entertainers.

Hi George Souto - I'll be spending Sunday afternoon there, along with my husband and a couple of past clients. We'll have a relaxing time enjoying the beauty, both visual and audio and then head to a nearby restaurant for an early dinner. Can't wait!

Music and nature together?  Sounds like this would be a can't-miss for me, too. Hopefully it'll be back for 2018 where I may get a chance to attend!

Good morning, John Meussner - are you moving up our way? I think you've hiked every mountain trail in SoCal; now it's time to explore the trails here, perhaps?

What a wonderful idea, Lottie!! I wish I was nearby to enjoy both nature and music in the botanical gardens in Golden Gate Park. Thanks for sharing the video, too!

Enjoy your weekend!

I was smitten last year by Flower Piano; heading there on Sunday with a couple of clients/friends. I expect to be charmed again even if I'm dressed in layers to keep Karl the Fog at bay!
