There will be music and art on the streets for two weeks beginning this Friday, when 88 brightly decorated pianos pop up again across New York City, with an open invitation for anybody to play, FREE, of course.
The popular program is from Sing for Hope, a non-profit group that supports artists to work in underserved communities.
There will be pianos in all five boroughs, including in Times Square, Herald Square, Van Cortlandt Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park, June 5th to 21st, after which the pianos will be donated to NYC schools and community groups.

The street pianos will be available for spontaneous concerts and sing-alongs.
The first free piano installation in NYC was in 2010, so this is a welcome encore performance.
