  2. 7/4/10--Day 5, 6th piano (around 8:25 p.m.) Emily's last piano of the day. Hopefully we'll be home in time to watch the fireworks on TV.
  3. Albert Cardone, 9, of Staten Island ...had to wait for the lady lying on top of the piano to get off .....after that it was great
  4. "Play Me, I'm Yours" was a dream come true for me: playing piano on the streets of New York in just about every location imaginable. I can't thank Luke Jerram, sing for hope, and all the volunteers enough for pulling off this special event. It was amazing to see so many pianists come out and play, and especially touching to hear so many gifted and talented children step up to what is a very challenging instrument (and play it in public on one of the world's biggest stages).

    In the beginning, I set out to play all five boroughs, but soon realized my day job wouldn't easily accommodate all the travel and logistics involved. So I reset my sights instead on playing every available Manhattan piano (and a few in Brooklyn and Queens). By the end of two weeks I had achieved my goal.

    My pieces are all improvisations, so playing on the streets of New York allowed me to share my spontaneous, energetic music with a city whose rhythms and tones have informed and influenced my music for years. The chance to publicly give back to a city whose people, music, and spirit have brought me joy for decades was the opportunity of a lifetime. Thanks for watching and listening.

    From the heart,

    Sandy Santra
