Pop-up orchestra on a delayed plane

Pop-up orchestra performance on a delayed plane! Violinist Juliette Kang, violinist Daniel Han, violaist Che-Hung Chen, and cellist Yumi Kendall of The Philadelphia Orchestra were traveling from Beijing to Macao on tour

When their flight was delayed on the tarmac for three hours, they decided to play some uplifting music to pass the time: Antonin Dvorak‘s “American” String Quartet No. 12 Finale.

You can read more about the quartet’s 2013 Residency & Fortieth Anniversary Tour of China at PhilOrch.org.

On a technology side note: How many phones and cameras can you count in the audience?
