I have been receiving photos from various BoogieDowner readers about a piano placed in a Bronx park for youth and others to enjoy.
I don’t know much about the who, when or how it got there, but there is a lot of excitement from our readers and I do enjoy the idea and photos sent. The piano seems to be associations with the Friends of Williamsbridge Oval and a not for profit called Sing for Hope. Anyone out there who does know more please about the piano please do educate us via a comment. Kudos to everyone who made the idea a reality. Are there more than one pop-up pianos out there?
Below is information taken from the web site address found on the piano stool photographed above.
“Founded by opera singers with a desire to lift their voices for social change, Sing for Hope is a non-profit organization that mobilizes professional artists – from classical musicians to photographers to Broadway performers – in volunteer service programs that benefit schools, hospitals, and communities.”
More information about the non-profit can be found at; http://singforhope.org
A special thanks for Judith Frias, Eileen Markey and Elizabeth Von Uhl for photos sent.
