Jenny Oaks Baker’s heart ached as she and her husband stared up at the Eiffel Tower lit up by fireworks as they listened to a symphony play. She was six months pregnant with her fourth child, and with much prayer, she felt from the Lord that she needed to leave her first violin seat in the National Symphony Orchestra—an extremely coveted position and one she could never get back. She poignantly thought, “I will never play that symphony again.” Then the words came into her mind, “It’s only the beginning.”

Watch their talents combined here.
