More than 30 musicians in 14 different countries have come together to record A Hope for the Future, a song written as a tribute to healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The song was first inspired by the celebrated American trumpet player Ryan Anthony — a former member of the Toronto brass quintet Canadian Brass — who is in hospital battling cancer.

Los Angeles-based Canadian trumpet soloist Jens Lindemann coordinated with 34 musicians in isolation to record and film the song from their homes around the world, and combined all those performances into a video uploaded to YouTube on April 8.
