Streetside Player Piano Takes Song Requests Via Social Media
Instrument allows people to tweet musical numbers as a way to promote city-wide art initiative.
From June 1st through June 16th, 88 pianos (one for each key on a instrument) are being placed throughout NYC’s five boroughs by the non-profit organization Sing for Hope. Formally known as Pop Up Pianos, the project’s creators were driven by the vision of “Art for All” and engaged a select group of artists to customize their own unique piano to be a part of the public art installation.
As part of an effort to promote the organization’s efforts , yogurt brand and Sing for Hope supporters Chobani showed off one very special piano, Stanley, in front of their flagship store in SoHo last Friday.
