London musicians go 'Underground'

Orchestra members recruited from the nearly four million commuters who use the London Underground.

    An orchestra made up entirely of strangers has just performed its first concert in Britain.

    The musicians were all recruited as they travelled on London's Underground train system.  The team was recruited by a music enthusiast who gave up his job in London's financial district to take on the challenge.
