Sing for Hope Pianos

The Sing for Hope Pianos places artist-designed pianos throughout NYC’s parks and public spaces for anyone
and everyone to play. Each summer, the pianos bring individuals and communities together in an open festival
of art for all. After their time on the streets, Sing for Hope transports the instruments to NYC public schools,
where they become hubs for Sing for Hope’s ongoing creative programs and enrich students’ lives for years to come.

This year, Sing for Hope placed its 450th unique piano artwork in the five boroughs, making NYC host to more
street pianos than any other city in the world. As New York City’s largest recurring public art project,
the Sing for Hope Pianos impacts an estimated 2 million people each year.

Sing for Hope is always looking for dedicated, enthusiastic community members like you to help watch over the Sing for Hope Pianos during their time on the streets and help to ensure that each instrument stays protected and able to move on to its permanent home once the public installation is over.


The Sing for Hope Pianos is a community initiative that places artist-created pianos in parks and public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City in the summer. For three weeks, the pianos remain outdoors for anyone and everyone to play. Then, we donate the pianos to local schools, healthcare facilities, and community-based organizations so they can reach under-resourced New Yorkers year round.
