Stoop Symphony

Feeling isolated due to Covid-19, cellist Saul Richmond-Rakerd began playing for passerby from his San Francisco stoop. He never expected that he’d inspire a community to come together, but that’s exactly what happened.

I was interested in telling a story about connection, that showed the triumph of creativity in the face of challenge. Saul’s beautiful music inspired me, along with an entire community, to feel optimistic about the hardships we’re all dealing with.
