Find Pop Up Pianos All Over NYC!
This summer, from June 1st through June 16th, the Sing for Hope Pianos return to our city streets. In one of New York City’s most vibrant public art installations, 88 artist-designed pianos (one for each key on a piano) are placed in parks and public spaces throughout the 5 boroughs for anyone and everyone to enjoy.
Visual artists from Sing for Hope’s roster of over 1,000 Volunteer Artists and local community members were selected through an open application process and donate their time and talent to create this beautiful gift to our city: 88 unique and interactive piano artworks.
Once on the streets, neighborhood associations and community organizations serve as “piano buddies” and supervise each piano throughout the duration of the project, making sure they are protected from inclement weather. The Sing for Hope Pianos unite our city, as artists from all walks of life create daily spontaneous concerts and neighborhoods come together around the shared gift of music and art.
After their public residency, the pianos are donated to under-served local schools, healthcare facilities, and community organizations, where Sing for Hope artists continue to bring the pianos to life year-round through classes, performances, and workshops.
Thanks to the generous support of Chobani, Inc the Sing for Hope Pianos are back in 2013 better than ever. The pairing is a well-suited partnership as the two like-minded, entrepreneurial organizations align in the mission to provide access to all – whether that access is rooted in the arts or good food.

Music at The Phillips Collection
Music has been a vital part of the Phillips’s cultural offerings since the museum opened in 1921.The flagship Sunday Concerts is the longest uninterrupted concert series in Washington, D.C., and has enriched the community since 1941, providing a platform for internationally acclaimed musicians and emerging artists at critical moments in their careers.
In partnership with embassies in Washington, the Phillips presents Leading European Composers, which introduces some of Europe’s finest talent to audiences in D.C. Each composer works directly with musicians of their choice, providing a unique dialogue between composer and performer.
Now in its second season our ensemble-in-residence, The Phillips Camerata, continues to carry the Phillips name and remarkable musical history into the concert circuit. Comprised of a flexible roster of leading instrumentalists from the D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York areas, the Camerata offers a range of performances each year under the artistic direction of Caroline Mousset.

The Hollywood Bowl: An Outdoor Oasis
When you think of listening to live music in Los Angeles, you automatically think of the Hollywood Bowl. Filled with killer performances, great seating and dining options that force you to leave the picnic basket behind, the Hollywood Bowl should be on everyone’s “to-do” list, whether you are a tourist or local.
The brilliant performers and performances that fill the stage make the Bowl’s schedule impossible to beat. With weekends devoted to “A Beatles Celebration” along with other famous faces, music enthusiasts will agree that the only way to enjoy a show is at the Bowl.
Though you may expect an outdoor music venue to be filled with cheap drinks and crummy food, the Hollywood Bowl allows foodies to go wild thanks to the Patina Restaurant Group and their endless dining options for those in box seats to those looking to grab a quick bite before the show.
With great food to accompany a great show, you may think your experience at the Hollywood Bowl will be perfect. The only downside to visiting the Bowl is parking. Though the website will give you a few options on how to park, most people will tell you to find alternate ways, like the park & ride or shuttle.
Fresh Entertainment at Historical DAR Constitution Hall
Only in town for a bit? Get a double dose of history and quality entertainment at DAR Constitution Hall – DC’s largest concert hall. Host to a variety of events throughout the year, including concerts, operas, high-profile lecturers and comedians, Constitution Hall is no stuffy federal building. As a Registered National Historical Landmark and owned by the elite Daughter’s of the American Revolution organization, this gorgeous venue has hosted every US President since Calvin Coolidge with performers from across the map – from Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Duke Ellington to Billy Joel, U2, Aerosmith and Jimmy Buffet. Needless to say, for such a prestigious structure, the entertainment factor is definitely not lacking.
Insider’s Tip: Purchase all DAR tickets through ticketmaster.com, as the DAR does not handle ticket sales.
2. Free Concerts Galore in Central Park July 1-31
Anyone who lives in NYC knows that Central Park is the place to go for amazing free concerts in the summer. From SummerStage to GMA’s Summer Concert Series, there’s a plethora of options both day and night in Central Park.
In July, the SummerStage will feature the highly anticipated performances The Metropolitan Opera: Summer Recital Series as well as the critically acclaimed Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Company. The SummerStage also plays host to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show in July as world music like Istanbulive II.
GMA’s star-studded stage lives up to its reputation this month with performances from Mary J. Blige, The GO-GO’s, Sheryl Crow and the Black Eyed Peas. All these concerts are free and open to the public, but there is always a long, long wait, so plan to get there early… very early.
Rock It Out at House of Blues
You’ve probably been to one before – Vegas, Boston, New Orleans – or another great city for live shows. House of Blues has been established in Dallas for just a few short years, but the experience is just as amazing in your hometown. Filled with eclectic décor and music memorabilia that will make your head spin, HOB has more to offer than you might realize at first glance.
Concerts like Vampire Weekend and Aqua Teen Hunger Force draw the hipster crowd, and events like the famed Gospel Brunch entice groups of all ages to groove to soulful hymns and indulge in one of the most comprehensive buffets in the city. Private parties can be arranged for groups of any size, and the ultra cool Foundation Room gives a VIP vibe to any special occasion.
If you’re just in the mood for a hot meal and laid-back atmosphere, the HOB restaurant serves up mouth-watering entrees like Blues Burgers and Salmon Jambalaya. The next time you’re itching for hot music, traditional food and a happening spot to get your party on, forget about cutting loose at the House of Blues in any other city until you’ve given the Dallas location a try.
The Citi Center is Boston’s Center Stage
If you’re looking to check out a show while in town, chances are you’ll be heading over to the Wang Theatre where Louis XVI’s opulence and the Roaring Twenties come together at the Citi Performing Arts Center. Formerly known as the Wang Center, the 3,600-seat venue hosts a variety of theatrical performances from comedy shows and theater performances to dance productions and the famed Nutcracker ballet.
The center opened in 1925 and today boasts one of the five largest stages in the country. The theater has seen numerous performances, including the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Riverdance, The Kirov Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick Jr., Dave Matthews, Lady Gaga, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera.
While many guests choose to dress up for their special night out on the town, others can also be seen wearing more casual attire. Because there is no specific dress required here, you could see everything ranging from evening gowns to jeans. There are several parking lots located adjacent to and across the street making it easy to get in and out of after a performance.
More than Hoops and Hockey Pucks at the Pepsi Center
Though it’s best known as the home of the Nuggets and the Avalanche, the 5-story, 20,000-seat Pepsi Center is no mere sports venue. Located at the edge of downtown, the site of the 2008 Democratic National Convention also hosts concerts (think Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga), ice shows, and family fare galore (the Harlem Globetrotters regularly perform here). What’s more, amenities abound—from a full-service restaurant, the Blue Sky Grill, and a merchandise outlet to private event suites and even a state-of-the-art business center and meeting space. If it weren’t for the thunderous crowds cheering on Carmelo Anthony and Chris “Birdman” Anthony, you could practically mistake the place for a grand hotel.
