The rhythm of Royal Oak’s downtown has been sprinkled with musical notes now that eight public pianos are in place outside businesses in the district.Whimsically painted and open to all players from children to professionals, seven of the pianos were delivered Thursday morning to locations outside Holiday Market, Eagle Plaza next to the Center Street parking deck, Qdoba restaurant, Ideation, Bright Ideas furniture store, the Farmers Market and Gayle’s Chocolates.
