Sing for Hope Pianos will once again fill 50 of our parks and public spaces this June. This year’s fleet of playable masterpieces have been created by artists including the Broadway casts of Kinky Boots, Dear Evan Hansen, The Play that Goes Wrong, and Wicked! + many more.
All 50 Sing for Hope Pianos will make their debut, accompanied by special guests, on June 4th at 28 Liberty Plaza. From there, the pianos will head out to a designated location for anyone and everyone to play.
In addition, Sing for Hope Pianos has teamed up with MINI USA to create an additional piano on wheels ~ the mobile #MINIPiano will be inside a MINI Countryman, and will bring pop-up performances to neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs.
The Sing for Hope Pianos are currently being created at a 10,000 square-foot space at 28 Liberty ~ the Fosun Sing for Hope Center, which has been generously donated by Fosun since 2016.
Since 2006, Sing for Hope has partnered with over 250 nonprofit organizations, involved over 3,500 artists in creative volunteerism, and placed over 400 artist-created Sing for Hope Pianos in public spaces.
The Sing for Hope Pianos are a three-week installation, from June 4th to June 24th. After this time, the pianos will be delivered to selected New York City public schools ~ many of which have never had a piano in the building.
We will continue to update this post with more images, as the pianos arrive at their various locations.
