During Brain Sugery In London, A Musician Plays Her Violin
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin with an amazing story to share. Surgeons at King's College Hospital in London were operating on a brain tumor. The patient was a violinist named Dagmar Turner. They needed to make sure they didn't damage her ability to play, so the doctors woke Turner up.

DAGMAR TURNER: (Playing violin).
MARTIN: And she played as they took out more than 90% of the tumor. Turner thanked her doctors and said she hopes to be back with her orchestra soon. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
