Passengers on an Alaskan Airlines flight bound for Palm Springs got a bit of surprise this week: an impromptu symphony performance on the plane.

When the flight was delayed for 2 hours (what, an airline? no!), members of the Grammy-award winning Seattle Symphony Orchestra, who were on their way to The Desert to play two benefits, decided to break out their instruments during the flight and start playing. The quartet featured two violinists, a viola and a cellist.

The performance was captured by a passenger and posted to Facebook:

“(It) made everyone’s night!” said Addie Bogart told KING-TV. “It almost made us forget we were two hours late to Palm Springs.”

Remarkably, the airline did not charge passengers for the performance.
