The Sing for Hope Piano initiative comes to a musical close on Sept. 6. The program, a partnership between the city of Beverly Hills and the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, is responsible for the 16 colorful, artist-designed pianos dotting Beverly Hills. The whimsical instruments are located in areas such as Beverly Hills City Hall, Beverly Gardens Park, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Will Rogers Memorial Park, La Cienega Park and Roxbury Park. By the looks (and sounds) of things, Sing for Hope has been a great success. The Courier has noticed a steady stream of visitors and residents playing, interacting with and photographing the pianos. Now, the pianos move on to permanent residences in public schools across the greater Los Angeles area, where they will no doubt be enjoyed for years to come.
