Have you been practicing your scales?
If you haven't, you better get to it, my fellow musicians.
From June 5th to the 25th, Sing for Hope is bringing 60 of its animated pianos back to the streets of NYC.
The pianos will be accessible for any and every musician looking to play a tune. But hey, if you can only play chopsticks, we don't judge.
On June 5th, the nonprofit organization will be having a special public unveiling of all of the pianos at 28 Liberty Plaza. They will be featuring pop-up performances from Sing for Hope artists throughout the day-long event.
The 60 vibrantly painted pianos will be set up in high-traffic locations across all five boroughs.
This year's pianos have been designed by artists including Kate McKinnon, Roberta Flack, Billy the Artist, the Broadway casts of Aladdin, Beautiful, Cats, Chicago, Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, School of Rock, Waitress, and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812– and many more.
Once the installation comes to a close, the pianos will find new homes in various NYC public schools.
Sing for Hope provides creative programming to under-resourced communities throughout NYC and beyond.
