SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Traveling during the holiday season can turn some people into a Scrooge.
But the Springfield Symphony Orchestra is hoping to change that.
Travelers at the Springfield-Branson National Airport were treated to a quartet from the Springfield Symphony Orchestra playing Christmas carols Friday.
Members of the symphony have made this a tradition over the years.
They’re hoping to help ease the burden of traveling and say they enjoy performing in a different setting.
“It’s kind of fun. We’re usually up there under the lights, we can’t see the audience, and now we can look up from the music and just see people walking around,” Matt Pierce, principal cellist for the Springfield Symphony, said.
Members of the orchestra rotate who performs each week.
You can typically find them in the lobby on Fridays during the holiday season.
