Sing For Hope’s Pianos Visit NYC’s Streets!!
This summer, Sing For Hope has installed 50 pianos in all five boroughs of New York City’s Parks and public spaces. From now until June 23, you can visit all 50 idiosyncratically designed pieces of art and uncover the hidden sounds of music designed to inspire unity and life’s transformative creativity. You can cruise with NYC Ferry to discover piano installments near or in walking distance from our ferry landings.
Sing for Hope’s mission aims to achieve the transformation of lives by using the power of the arts to create a better world. Sine 2010, this non-profit organization has partnered with hundreds of artist to design and paint playable pianos. These beautifully designed instruments are installed in creative spaces for public viewing and interaction for three weeks. At the end of the three weeks, the pianos are donated to New York City’s schools and hospitals, enabling students and patients alike the experience and enjoyment of music.
“No other acoustic instrument can match the piano’s expressive range, and no electric instrument can mat its mystery. The piano is able to communicate the sublets universal truths by means of wood, metal and vibrating air,” Kenneth Miller.
