Another neighbor, Ellie Allen, told the newspaper they were used to seeing Palant perform with the Orchestra Delray and the Sunrise Pops Orchestra. But that was before the pandemic. With community events canceled, Palant's concerts are the next best thing.
Palant’s audience, clad in T-shirts and wearing face coverings, applaud after each musical selection.
Palant has brought her music to her neighbors’ homes on occasion. A friend had to celebrate her 57th birthday in quarantine last week, but Palant gave her something to smile about.
"She thought it was going to be her worst birthday ever," Palant told the Sun-Sentinel.
But a violin serenade of “Happy Birthday” lifted the woman’s spirits.
Palant said she got her inspiration for her backyard concerts after she saw videos on social media. She began playing daily in early April and has not missed a day, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
“This is a pleasure for me to do, and it gives me an outlet as well,” Palant told the newspaper. “It brings me comfort that I can do something for my neighborhood."
