Street pianos New York at SingforHope.org was a wonderful project that exposed the citizens of New York City to beautiful music as the city’s inhabitants went about their day. The pianos were positioned in the five boroughs of NYC, and were adorned with modern and abstract artwork to make the instruments even more attractive. The project served as a way to remind people of the importance of music and the life-changing effect being exposed to music has on individuals of all ages. The street piano project is also a testament to the fact that music has a magical way of bringing people together. Testimonials concerning the music project include a couple celebrating their one-year anniversary in the park with romantic (unplanned) piano music playing in the background and a pianist playing in Herald Square who used the experience to overcome stage fright. The Street Pianos New York at Spring for Hope.org project was made possible with assistance from Chobani, the top-selling yogurt brand in the U.S. Other companies who lent their support to the project included the Sing for Hope Founder’s Circle, the Arnhold Foundation and the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation.
Sing for Hope is an organization committed to making the arts accessible to everyone. The group seeks to include more music in schools, bring the creative arts to nursing homes and provide more options for learning about the arts in community centers. Sing for Hope was started in 2006 by singers Monica Yunus and Camille Zamora who met while attending Juilliard. The organization relies heavily on volunteers who are experienced in a number of artistic disciplines to carry the mission of Sing for Hope into the community. Dancers, singers, puppeteers and/or musicians who want to make a difference in their communities are encouraged to become a part of Sing for Hope.
