On Friday, a group of National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) musicians traveled to Howard University Hospital where they performed a 45-minute mini-concert.

The event serves as part of the NSO’s “In Your Neighborhood” program, which began this month and is now in its 10th year.

With the challenges Americans continue to face due to COVID-19, the NSO said it remains committed to offering special performances to front-line health care workers who have stepped up during the pandemic as well as others affected in various communities.

The program represents an annual residency in chosen D.C. neighborhoods whose goal remains to have a social impact by using music to better lives.
