May 2017 - Sing For Hope Pianos VIP Sneak Peek

Celebrate a Springtime Favorite with Sing For Hope Pianos

NYC Parks in the Spring - there is truly nothing more serene. Kids playing in the grass, squirrels running from tree to tree, dogs struttin', the sweet sound of a piano breaking the calm afternoon in the park from the distance. That last part, thanks to our friends over at Sing For Hope Pianos - an organization that has placed 400 artist-designed pianos throughout the city. Pianos that are free to play for anyone, at any time. 

Join us on Monday, May 1st for the kickoff event of the 2017 SFH Piano Season at the Fosun Spring for Hope Center before the pianos hit the streets. This years public art pianos were created by a wide range of artists and performers that include Kate McKinnon, Roberta Flack, Billy the Artist, the Broadway casts of Aladdin, Beautiful, Cats, Chicago, Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, School of Rock, and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 — and many more. We will tour the new pianos and hear from the organization on ways we can help share, support and enjoy this favorite city summertime staple.
