- Together they sang at Lake Eola Park. An impromptu concert meant to bring healing to our city, through music.

Out of many, they sang as one members of the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity did what they to best to honor the 49 people killed in the Pulse nightclub terror attack.

In downtown Orlando's Lake Eola Park, members of the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity did what they to best to honor the 49 people killed in the Pulse nightclub terror attack.

"It's just so hard to think that something like this happened where I grew up," Javi Rodriguez, a member of the fraternity told Fox 35's David Williams.

Rodriguez, 20, lost a former high school classmate, Luis Vielma, in the Orlando terror attack.

"Everyone that I knew, that knew Luis, and was friends with him always had really great things to say about him," Rodriguez said. The LGBTQ community is well represented in the fraternity.

Music is one of the ways they're helping to comfort our city and nation in mourning. "It's a human language. No matter who you are, you'll be able to understand it," Rodriguez said. 

Understanding, and healing through harmony in music.

Quite a few people in the music fraternity tell Fox 35, they hope to comfort and heal as many people as they can, with their music.
