Got Hope? We do.
Sing for Hope’s Pop-Up Pianos are coming to a street near you to celebrate our vision: that all New Yorkers—from Rockaway to Riverdale, Stapleton to Sunset Park—have access to the arts. Each one of the 88 pianos you find on New York City streets, in parks and on boardwalks, has been painted by a Sing for Hope Volunteer Artist who shares our mission of bringing the arts to all.
From June 18 to July 2, enjoy impromptu performances on the pianos by members of our Volunteer Artist Roster—maybe a Broadway star, a local songwriter, or a ballerina. These individuals share one thing: a desire to give back through their art, and to unite artists with their local communities. We invite you to join in the fun by visiting your local piano, playing a tune, and spreading the word.
After the project ends on July 2, Sing for Hope’s Pop-Up Pianos will be donated to the local schools, hospitals, and community organizations that we serve year-round. We hope you continue to stay involved with Sing for Hope and, with your support, help us bring the arts to all New Yorkers.
The 2011 Sing for Hope Pop-Up Pianos, inspired by British artist Luke Jerram, is the world’s largest street piano installation to date, and is expected to reach over two million people.
You can also organize a Pop-Up concert around your local piano. Check out scheduled concerts or reserve a time at: http://pianos.singforhope.org/events/
