Sing for Hope

We hope this email finds you well!  We are writing on the recommendation of the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit at City Hall and Jennifer Lantzas at NYC Parks to discuss a project that our organization, Sing for Hope, is bringing to your neighborhood this summer.  From June 18 to July 2, Sing for Hope will place 88 pianos on the streets of New York City’s five boroughs.  For the two-week duration of the project, the pianos will feature both formal and impromptu concerts by amateurs and artists alike in a festival of music involving all elements of New York’s culturally diverse population. 

We are working with City Hall and the New York City Parks Department to place a piano at Crotona Park.  We would love the opportunity to meet with you in the coming weeks to discuss ways that Crotona Park might get involved with the piano and to determine a specific location for the piano.  As evidence of last year, the Sing for Hope Street Pianos have united New Yorkers and enriched our lives for years to come.  It would be wonderful to have Crotona Park participate in this community arts initiative.

We will be making site visits the week of March 21-25 and we would appreciate the chance to meet with you. Does any time during those dates work for you?

We look forward to being in touch and hope to hear from you soon.
