THE BRONX - Aspiring musicians have a chance to sit down and play the piano in dozens of different spots around the city, thanks to the third annual Sing for Hope event.

Sponsored by New York City and Chobani Yogurt, the mission behind Sing for Hope is to bring music to everyone. The 88 pianos have been painted and decorated by local artists and students and are scattered throughout all five boroughs.

The pianos can be found around New York City for the next two weeks. After that, they'll be donated to schools, hospitals, and other organizations.
