Sing For Hope Pianos Are Back!

We’re rip roarin’ and ready to rock during the first two weeks of June! With the help of the incredible Sing For Hope foundation, NYC celebrates the arts; bringing 88 painted pianos to the streets.

Why us, you ask? When we caught wind of Sing For Hope’s mission to bring good things to good people everywhere, we knew we had to be a part of it. Sharing the same passion for food, art and music; we also believe everyone should have access - to ALL of it.

Driven by the vision of “Art for All,”The Sing for Hope Pianos project selects artists from across the city to customize their own unique piano; thus creating an amazing public art installation across New York.  88 pianos, representing the 88 keys, will be placed throughout the 5 boroughs of New York City from June 1st-16th. New York inhabitants stretch their fingers, tap into their inner artist, and make cool music for the masses. After the installation closes, the 88 pianos will make their way to under-served schools, hospitals and local organizations in need, thus enriching our city communities for years to come.

This vision of ‘Art for All’ represents the belief that the arts have unique power to uplift, unite, and transform individuals and communities. New York City serves as the perfect stage for which the Sing For Hope Pianos can be played and enjoyed. They’re opening the door to a 16-day concert for New Yorkers. To think, the city that never sleeps is now dancing with musicians everywhere.

It’s time to stretch those fingers and get to tweeting. We’re kicking off the celebration with Stanley The Piano at our store, Chobani SoHo. Stanley is the world’s first tech savvy player-piano! He takes live requests from Twitter and he’ll be streaming live from Chobani SoHo on June 1st and 2nd. Be sure to stayed tuned!

And while you’re cruising the streets of NYC this summer, keep your eyes peeled for notable Pianos designed by John Varvatos, Arianna Huffington, and, of course, yours truly!

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the arts, one key at a time. Be a part of the conversation and tag your photos and tweets with #artforall.
