‘Sing For Hope’ Public Pianos Return June 1, Including BBP’s Pier 1

As BHB reported in February, Sing for Hope’s outdoor pianos—last seen the summer before last—will return next month to various locations in New York City, including Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1. The project launches June 1 and endures through the 16th, with 88 artist-designed pianos placed in parks & public spaces throughout the city for anyone to sit and plunk away upon.

The piano in BBP was designed by Stefan Sierhej, a cartoonist and freelance artist. It was designed to “look like a piece of white china with blue ornaments, and at the same time have it related to NYC as much as possible by using New York’s iconic images,” he says on Hope’s website.

Sing for Hope is a grassroots group of 1,000+ artists who volunteer “to make art broadly accessible to everyone.”

    I sure hope they won’t be robing us of our valuable parking spaces.

    I had the pleasure of reserving a half hour slot for the piano at BBP two years ago and organized a little singalong, which ended up on Youtube thanks to Claude Scales. It’s a great site.

    I don’t really play, but my paws could manage some clawed scales…
