7 Hart House Circle (Queen's Park Crescent and Wellesley)

The sounds of multiple upright and grand pianos fill the great halls of Hart House as artists pay homage to the iconic instrument--flexing its wires, striking its chords, gutting its inerts, working its pedals, sounding the back frame, hammering the keys, striking the soundboard, and ringing its planks, plate, ribs, bridges, strings, tuning pins, and pressure bars
