Play Me a Song, Pop-Up Piano Man

Sing for Hope, an organization dedicated to making sure art is available to everyone in New York City, is bringing the beats to the streets once again this year with Pop-Up Pianos. For two weeks, 88 public pianos throughout all boroughs will give New Yorkers a chance to see if they remember Chopsticks. (Please be warned that tries are unofficially capped at three for the sanity of innocent by-listeners.)

The pianos are painted by a bevy of professional artists and community volunteers, and will spring to life for a number of Pop-Up Concerts presented by some of NYC’s finest. When the public play wraps, the pianos will be tuned and tweaked and then donated to the local schools, hospitals, and community organizations that Sing for Hope serves year-round.

Jill is an Ohio native and Boston University graduate who refuses to stop saying "pop" and wearing her Red Sox gear despite being heckled for doing so since moving to Brooklyn. She's been honing her thrifty ways since doing that silly thing people talk about when they ignore reason to follow their hearts and chose a career in the fulfilling but faltering music industry. She earns her beer money as a publicist and writer, and spends her spare time cooking, biking, and trying to decide if she's ready to get a cat.
