BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Symphony Musicians held an hour-long concert for cars driving during rush hour Tuesday.

The musicians set up along the 1400 block of North Charles Street, between Mt. Royal Ave. and the JFX northbound ramp.

The curbside concert featured the music of Bach, Handel, Mozart, and more. Officials said in a statement that this is a way to reach area residents and commuters.

This is now the 10th week of a lockout due to a lack of funds.
