Seattle Symphony Serenades Stranded Travelers

SEATTLE (CelebrityAccess) — Members of the Seattle Symphony came to the rescue of passengers of a delayed flight, when they performed a free, impromptu concert.

Members of the Symphony's string quartet broke out their instruments and performed while waiting for the plane to take off on its delayed flight to Palm Springs.

The quartet – violinists Mikhail Shmidt and Elisa Barston, violist Susan Gulkis Assadi and cellist Walter Gray – was traveling to play two benefit concerts, Seattle's KING 5 news reported.

"(It) made everyone's night! It almost made us forget we were two hours late to Palm Springs," one passenger told KING 5 News. – Staff Writers
