88 pianos in the city

For the third consecutive year, Sing for Hope is making music available in the city of New York by placing 88 pianos in parks & public spaces. This operation is a great way to get everyone engaged with the arts: the pianos are designed / re-designed by artists, musicians come and give impromptu concerts, and essential point: yes, you can play the piano!

Today, June 16th, is the last day of the 2013 edition: all of the pianos are meeting outside Lincoln Center, then will be donated to schools, healthcare centers & community organizations. Most important: the pianos will continue to bring people together throughout the year through performances, workshops, and more.
