Sing for Hope recognizes the power of the arts and transforms underserved communities by mobilizing professional artists in volunteer service programs to those who need it most. Each Sing for Hope program uses art as a catalyst for charitable giving, community understanding, and positive change in individuals, organizations, and our world.
Shepherd’s Gift works with the volunteers at Sing for Hope in their Pop Up Pianos and Healing Arts programs. Across parks in all five boroughs, Pop Up Pianos places 88 individually painted pianos. This profound public outreach project inspires the creative potential that lives inside each of us, and is symbolic of our communal responsibility to unlock that potential.
