This month (August), 50 schools will become owners of pianos that were previously on long term loan from the Sing50 Fund. In 2015, the 50 Steinway-designed Lang Lang baby grand pianos were featured in a Sing50 mega concert jointly organised by The Straits Times and The Business Times. Under the Sing50 Fund's Adopt-a-Piano programme, the schools will now have full ownership of the pianos. Mr Edmund Cheng, chairman of the Sing50 Fund, said in a statement on Saturday (Aug 18): "The schools have been very committed in using these pianos to promote our local music through their music programmes and community platforms. We hope that (having full ownership of the pianos) will serve as a greater impetus and further empower the 50 schools to continue their work in promoting Singapore music."
