Haiti Piano Project

A unique artistic project

During the Itinérance exhibition, the Quatre Couleurs association will donate part of the profits to the Haiti Piano Project association to help finance the construction of a concert piano and the creation of a music festival in Haiti.

The Haiti Piano Project is the creation of the first classical music festival around the piano in Haiti. It will start in Jacmel with concerts by renowned and committed artists, for a meeting between classical music and Haitian creation. The idea is to highlight an architectural heritage listed by UNESCO through music and to carry out an educational and transmission mission among young people in order to discover young Haitian artistic talents. Strong moments of sharing and gathering will be born thanks to music around the king instrument: the piano.

To give birth to a new artistic initiative to help promote a different image of Haiti.
