88 Custom Designed Pianos Make Their Way Around NYC For Charity

Stanley Close Up[2]

Looking to go on a scavenger hunt this weekend? If you’re in NYC, you can head across the five boroughs in search of 88 pianos.

Chobani and Sing for Hope, a charity bringing art and music to underserved parts of communities. The 88 pianos will be spread across New York City from now until June 16, in parks and public places. And, they will be public – anyone can try their hand at playing for a while. The pianos themselves were designed by artists from all across the country working with Sing for Hope and, after their New York City run, will be donated to a collection of schools, hospitals, and community centers in need.

This is the third year Sing for Hope has put on this program, this time bringing Stanley Piano along for the ride. Stanley Piano is an automated piano player that was taking Twitter requests on June 1-2, streaming songs live and notifying whoever made the request. Not sure where he’ll be going off to after Sing for Hope Pianos wraps up, though.
