Professional String Quartet Jams Out During A Traffic Jam

Music to their ears.

When you've got places to be, or even when you're just out for a nice drive, hitting traffic feels like the worst possible thing in the world.

So when a vehicle filled with horses broke down in England earlier this month, causing standstill traffic "on one of the country's biggest highways," drivers were, most likely, not amused. 


However, one of the cars just so happened to be filled with a professional string quartet, ready and willing to entertain.

According to The Telegraph, the group took out their instruments and performed Pachelbel's "Canon." 

"A crowd of people came over, and everyone seemed to like it - it was great. People seemed to just come over, they saw us unpacking and everything so it wasn't much of a surprise for them, but they got into it it was really nice," cellist Alison Gillies told the publication.

And throughout the video, viewers can see and hear people emerging from their cars, gathering around the quartet, filming the performance, and laughing in good spirits.

"This is the best part of the holiday!" a woman says in the video.

"Between us, we have played some of the most incredible concert venues globally and the one afternoon you play the M5 it all goes crazy," violinist Lu Jeffery told The Telegraph.

If only there could be a string quartet ready to jam in any jam.
