Violist Marina Thibeault's baby boy Lucien was having a nap backstage during her concert but woke up in time for the encore. So mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta held him while they performed a lullaby for him.

Violist Marina Thibeault, pianist Frederic Lacroix and mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta were performing in a gala concert at the Dominion Chalmers United Church in Ottawa just before Christmas.

Marina's baby boy Lucien was having a nap backstage during the concert, but he woke up just in time for the final piece… which happened to be a lullaby.

So Marina brought Lucien out and Wallis held him while they all performed Brahms’s ‘Geistliches Wiegenlied’ to the baby.

And someone filmed the whole special performance.
