The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has played a free outside concert in the city as tensions appear to be easing after the riots.

The symphony played around lunchtime and dozens of people gathered and sang the national anthem as the orchestra played along. The concert is part of the city’s efforts to return to some sort of normalcy after rioters looted stores and burned businesses on Monday night.

A weeklong nighttime curfew started on Tuesday and there were very few problems. Protesters have taken to the streets because they are upset over the police-custody death of Freddie Gray.
