Raising Funds for Street Pianos
If you check back at All About Fifth regularly, you know that we are big fans of outdoor music. For example, Make Music NY really made a nice impact on Fifth Avenue back in June. So, when we learned about this show taking place on Wednesday (January 12th), 8 pm, at Southpaw, we were more than happy to spread the word.
Brooklyn-based duo Greene Girl is hosting a piano-themed benefit show, featuring Anni Rossi, Emily Wells (video above), Georgiana and more. Proceeds go directly to the non-profit Sing For Hope, which organized last summer's Street Pianos, in which 60 pianos were placed in parks and public spaces throughout the city for people to enjoy. This event will help bring the pianos back in 2011 and for that, we applaud the organizers and say "Bring a piano to Fifth Avenue!"
Tickets are $10 at the door
