CLEVELAND – On November 2, 2016, members of the string section of The Cleveland Orchestra performed the National Anthem at Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.
(No-one asked the Chicago Symphony, apparently.)
The eight musicians included first violinists Takako Masame, Chul-In Park, and Jeanne Preucil Rose; principal second violinist Stephen Rose; second violinist Carolyn Gadiel Warner; cellist David Alan Harrell; and bassist Mark Atherton as well as violinist Stephen Warner, who retired from the orchestra earlier this year.

Chicago, however, won the Series.
