The pandemic is preventing musicians from taking the stage to showcase their talents, but one Cambria violinist found her platform in a parking lot.

Cars pulled into the Jewish Community Center Federation (JCC) in San Luis Obispo for a one-woman, drive-in concert Sunday.

Brynn Albanese, a violinist from Cambria has been performing on the Central Coast for 15 years and brought her music to community members Sunday for a socially-distanced concert.

Attendees could listen to the music from their car or sit outside while wearing a mask and following social distancing.

"Being able to offer this during such challenging times and being able to create that sense of unity and community is something that is truly special, and we're happy at the JCC Federation to be able to offer something like that," Bobby Naimark, the JCC manager said.

The concert was free for all guests with a suggested donation of $20 per car.
