In support and celebration of this year’s project, Pop-Up Piano Miami and Steinway & Sons Miami will host a fundraising concert at The PERRY South Beach Hotel, one of Miami’s premier and chic hotspot hotels. The evening is sponsored in part by Perry Ellis International, a proud supporter of the thriving arts community in South Florida. The event will feature a performance by Yuna who is presented by Metro 1 with some surprise special performances including the renowned rockjazz pianist Elew. Surrounding the highlighted performances will be one of Miami’s famed nightlife DJs, Yissel Cabrera A.K.A. DJ YSL. Fundraiser guests will be able to enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres courtesy of The One Group and cocktails courtesy of GREY GOOSE Vodka. Guests can expect to receive goodie bags with a surprise gift from Hallandale’s newest wine shop, Mas Vino, and nibbles from KIND Healthy Snacks. All of the finished pianos will be on view at the event before they are dispersed to the streets the following morning by Wynwood Shipping. The evening will close with Soligo Brut prosecco and sweets also courtesy of The One Group.
The event will host a silent auction of unique treats and donated gifts from PUPM partners. One of the silent auction items will include a Pop-Up Piano Miami piano painted and signed by last year’s participating artist, Arnaud Pages. Guests will have the opportunity to own their very own PUPM piano. The funds that are raised from the auction and ticket sales will be donated to Friends of the New World Symphony and Central Africa’s only symphony orchestra, Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra, which was recently featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes. The concert is expected to be one Art Basel week’s premier events for a worthy cause.
