BROOKLYN - Aspiring musicians had a chance to sit down and play the piano in dozens of different spots around the city today, 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, painted and decorated by local artists and students, 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.

News 12 has learned that one of the pianos has already been vandalized overnight. A source says that someone took off a plastic cover on one of the pianos and detached the music stand and keyboard cover.
