Music is a universal language, and the members of the London Symphonia’s brass quintet used it to say a loud and proud thank-you by playing for hospital workers and patients back in June. Trumpeters Shawn Spicer and Scott Harrison, French horn player Kate Stone, trombonist Rob Stone, and tuba player Brent Adams stood in a physically distanced circle in the parking lots of Victoria and University Hospitals and the Dearness long-term care home and played a selection of upbeat tunes as their audience listened from windows. You can check out highlights from their day of musical gratitude on YouTube:
