An everyday busking scene became a moment of pure joy when some passing ballet dancers decided to join in

This New York string quartet probably expected a normal day’s busking when they set up their music stands. Instead, they got something altogether more extraordinary – and joyful.

The group chose Bach’s masterpiece, the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

Here they are getting into their Baroque swing…
