Pianos are placed across New York City so that passers-by can enjoy the arrival of spring with a musical twist.

The video shows a very off key man named Mr. Om playing one of the pianos.

Thanks to a public art project titled "Sing for Hope Pianos", Om is playing one of 88 pianos that have been painted by a local artist and placed at landmark sites throughout the city.

Om's owner Robyn Byrd has been waiting for the project to return.

She said she took Om to the park to play last year too.

"I thought he'd play something really nice but he didn't."

Internationally acclaimed sopranos Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus, co-founded "Sing for Hope," and share a common belief in the power of arts to transform communities.

At one of the Central Park pianos, tourists passing by stopped to play a few chords.

Minnesotans Mark and Elly Stahl jumped at the chance to perform a "Chopsticks" duet while birds chirped in the background.

Thousands of people will take their turn on these keys before the project ends on June 16th.
