WATCH: Philadelphia Orchestra Entertains Stranded Plane In Beijing

Plane delays suck. But they suck a little less when the Philadelphia Orchestra is onboard. The orchestra, currently on tour in China, found itself stuck on a plane in Beijing that had been sitting on the tarmac for hours. So, several members of the orchestra whipped out their instruments (apparently they were carry-on size) and entertained the crowd.

    The instruments that these elite musicians play are so valuable and fragile that they buy a seat for for the instrument if it’s bigger than carry-on size (as in the case of a cello).
