Hands Harvard Square: Uniting Hands in the Name of Freedom and Music

The Hands Movement will commemorate 9/11 with free piano lessons for people of all ages and skill levels, in Cambridge, MA.

BOSTON, September 8th, 2016. The Hands Movement, the not for profit known for taking pianos in public spaces to teach people of all ages, from all walks of life to play the instrument and prove that anyone can be a musician is announcing a new event to take place in Cambridge, MA. 

Hands Harvard Square will be the second event held by the not for profit in Cambridge, but the first ever dedicated to celebrating our freedom and commemorating the terrorist attacks of September 11th. Organized with the support of the Harvard Square Business Association, the Cambridge Arts Council, and Falcetti Music, Hands Harvard Square aims to bring diverse members of the community together to show that music can unite us all and help us express our shared beliefs and values.

The organizers invite all those who love music and would like to come together on this day in Harvard Square, to attend the event, from 1 PM to 6 PM. The Hands Team will set up their piano directly in front of Crema Coffee (Brattle St.) and be asking all present individuals to participate. Those that do will be featured in a final event video showing the hands and emotions of all participants coming together to make one complete song.
