If you play piano, you can soon have the whole city as your audience.
British artist Luke Jerram is placing 60 pianos in city parks and public spaces this summer.
Starting June 21st, upright pianos will start appearing around the five boroughs – including the Coney Island boardwalk, Times Square, and the Bronx Zoo.
The program, called "Play Me, I'm Yours," has gone from London to Sydney since its launch in 2008.
The pianos are from the non-profit organization called "Sing for Hope" and will be donated to local schools and community groups after the exhibit ends on July 5th.
