Performers Spread Holiday Cheer Around Philadelphia

By John McDevitt

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The sounds of the holiday season are filling the air.

Performers are giving it their all, no matter if they’re hitting the notes or not. They’re playing Christmas tunes on the streets in Center City and train stations.

Summer and Sean, instrumental majors at The Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, were seen playing violins.

“I just do it for the simple enjoyment of pleasing others through music and to come out and be embraced by the community is a great feeling, especially around the holidays,” says Summer.

And some people stopped for a few minutes to take it all in some giving dollars to show their appreciation.

“Oh they’re excellent,” one man says.

And nearby performer “Mega Rock” was making some money by strumming some holiday cheer for passersby.
