The poet Langston Huges wrote: "Let life be like music," and some of the city's littlest cancer patients had their lives broadened, and, we hope, vastly extended by a surprise performance today, 1200 WOAI news reports.

  World class violinist and San Antonio native Nancy Zhou is used to performing in ornate opera and symphony halls before extremely well dressed spectators.


  But today her audience was very different.  She took her violin to the cancer ward at Children's Hospital of San Antonio and performed for little children suffering from cancer and for their stressed-oout parents.


  Zhou, 21, is recognized as one of the best rising young violinists in the country.  She is in town to headline at tomorrow night's San Antonio Symphony concert, and to perform at the city's annual Dvorak Festival.


  Zhou performed literally in the hallway of the eighth floor dialysis clinic and on the cancer ward floor at the hospital.


  CHoSA and Santa Rosa Health Care are sponsors of Zhou's performance with the Symphony at the Majestic tomorrow night.
