Sing for Hope transforms lives throughout New York City by bringing the power of the arts to those who need it most. Through the volunteer service of dedicated artists—actors, musicians, dancers, Broadway performers, directors, photographers, puppeteers, painters, and more—Sing for Hope provides dynamic arts outreach programming to under-resourced communities across NYC. Sing for Hope’s programs include collaborative concerts for hospital patients, after-school arts classes for at-risk youth, and its flagship public art initiative, The Sing for Hope Pianos, which reaches an estimated 2 million New Yorkers and visitors every year. A celebration of Sing for Hope’s vision of art for all, this beloved public art project brings artist-designed pianos to the parks and public spaces of NYC for two weeks each summer, then moves the instruments to permanent homes in the schools, healthcare facilities, and community organizations that Sing for Hope serves year-round. Sing for Hope is defined by the volunteerism of artists, the needs of the community, and the belief in the power of the arts to uplift, unite, and transform. Founded in 2006, Sing for Hope is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Learn more at
