Chicago Trumpeter Lifts Spirits With Rendition of 'Let It Snow' From Balcony

A man in Chicago gave his locked-down neighbors something to smile about on Sunday, March 22, when he performed Let It Snow from his balcony during a wintry shower.

Michele Kory shot this video from her balcony as the musician performed the classic festive song from an apartment across from her. Rarely has the line “since we’ve no place to go” been more apt. “Little moment of happiness here,” Kory wrote.

Parts of Chicago saw up to three inches of snow on Sunday, a day after residents of Illinois were ordered to stay home.

As of Monday morning, Illinois had 1,049 cases of COVID-19, and nine deaths. Credit: Michele Kory via Storyful
