The Sing for Hope Pianos is the country’s largest annually recurring public arts project, placing artist-designed pianos in parks and public spaces for anyone and everyone to play. Sparking impromptu music-making and connections, they create spontaneous moments of joy and community, bringing people together. 

And here’s the best part: the Sing for Hope Pianos are YOURS! They are free and open for all of your jam sessions, student performances, musically accompanied yoga sessions, dance-offs, workshop/classes, music videos, livestreams, and more. Your Sing for Hope Pianos’ creative opportunities are as boundless as your imagination. 

After their time in a public space, the Sing for Hope Pianos are delivered to schools, healthcare facilities, and community centers where they inspire lives for years to come.

CURRENTLY OPEN FOR PUBLIC PLAY

GLOBAL REACH

Since 2010, we have produced 570 Sing for Hope Pianos, making New York City host to more public pianos than any other city in the world. The world's largest collection of individually credited public piano artworks, the Sing for Hope Pianos program now spans the United States and beyond. Each SFH Piano is created by a Sing for Hope Artist Partner who shares our belief in art for all. Click below to view current and recent highlights.

The heart of the Sing for Hope Pianos program is our "artist peace corps" – the brilliant Artist Partners whose piano artworks transform individuals and communities.
