    NYC

    Jessica Brown-White pianoSing for Hope is back with the pianos placed all around NYC. 88 artist-decorated pianos (one for each key on a piano) are placed in parks and public spaces throughout the 5 boroughs for anyone and everyone to enjoy. After their public residency, the pianos are donated to under-served local schools, healthcare facilities, and community organizations, where Sing for Hope artists continue to bring the pianos to life year-round through classes, performances, and workshops.

    Jessica Browne-White (one of the artists) invited me to come play some music on her piano on Sunday afternoon. There will be swing-dancers there as well, so I’ll be playing some old-time classics. Come join the fun, or find a piano near you.
