Sing for Hope Pianos
THE SING FOR HOPE
For the past 10 years, I've had the great pleasure of participating in the Sing for Hope Piano project, one of New York City's largest public art projects which brings artist-painted pianos to the parks and public spaces of the city for public enjoyment. The pianos often feature formal and impromptu concerts and have been likened to an open festival of music bringing together New York’s culturally diverse population. Following their two-week public residency, the Sing for Hope Pianos are donated to schools, healthcare facilities, and community centers, enriching lives for years to come. CBS News wrote that the project was "reminding us all of the power of music to inspire and unite."
Sing for Hope is a non-profit organization that was established as a resource for New York artists who want to use their art to give back to their community.
Entering its tenth year as a 501(c)(3) public charity based in New York City, Sing for Hope's vision is that the arts have unique power to uplift and unite individuals and communities. Its volunteer-driven outreach programs reach several thousand people a year at various under-resourced schools, community centers, and healthcare facilities in the five boroughs.
Sing for Hope's Volunteer Artist Roster features artists from almost every artistic discipline.
