Sing for Hope is honored to partner with IFAM to bring a special 2018 Sing for Hope Piano to Santa Fe’s renowned International Folk Art Market. Designed by the students of Mandela International Magnet School to reflect Sing for Hope’s mission of art for all, this soon-to-be-revealed Sing for Hope Piano is here for anyone and everyone to play and enjoy for the duration of this year’s market. Following its summertime public residency, the piano will be placed in its permanent year-round home at the school.

 

The Sing for Hope Piano is located on the lower level of the IFAM, next to the Children’s Passport Booth. Come by and play anytime — and join Sing for Hope Co-Founders Monica Yunus and Camille Zamora & friends there on Sunday, July 16 at 12noon for some special shared music-making!
