BWW Exclusive: Serino Coyne Partners with Sing for Hope!

Theatrical advertising agency Serino Coyne has partnered with Sing for Hope as a part of an agency-wide service initiative to give back to New York City. Sing for Hope uplifts individuals and communities by mobilizing artists in service, bringing the power of the arts to those who need it most. "The arts belong to everyone. Sing for Hope creates opportunities for people to access the arts. As live entertainment marketing professionals, it is our job to support shows and artists. The next generation of Broadway composers could be inspired by a piano that is placed in their school or learning environment," said Angelo Desimini, Chief Executive Officer of Serino Coyne.

This is Serino Coyne's first time designing a piano with Sing for Hope. The agency has previously facilitated partnerships with Sing for Hope for its Broadway clients. "Serino Coyne works with the biggest and brightest talents on Broadway and we are so excited to be partnering and bringing that star-power to the under-resourced communities we serve in New York City," said Lester Vrtiak, Director of Artist Engagement.

The piano design represents the neon lights of Broadway. "As members of the Broadway community since 1977, we wanted to find a theme that represented all of the shows we have been able to be a part of and point to the bright future of Broadway," said Serino Coyne Art Director, Peter Gunther.

The piano is currently located at Serino Coyne's offices and will be moved to its permanent home at a New York City public school this fall.
