Graveyard ‘ghosts’ serenaded by mysterious saxophone-playing woman in CCTV

A woman was caught playing saxophone to the "spirits" in a cemetery when CCTV was installed to deter vandals.

In the mysterious footage, recorded in Oakwood Cemetery, in Syracuse, New York, the unknown woman rollerskates among the graves and then whips out her instrument and begins to play The First Noel.

In front of the cemetery's chapel, she continues to play the haunting tune.

The footage was originally filmed on December 12 but has since gone viral after being uploaded on TikTok by @syracusehistory on January 5 with the caption: "We have a camera up in Oakwood Cemetery to catch vandals.

"Instead we spotted this individual spreading holiday cheer to the spirits in December."

Unsurprisingly, the video has been viewed more than 80,000 times on the video-sharing app and captured the imaginations of viewers who found the solitary act heartwarming.

One fan commented: "That was so awesome, I feel like I felt a new emotion."

Another viewer wrote: "Helps you keep faith."

"It is so important to honor and remember the spirits who have travelled to meet the creator," said someone else.

Lots of people were especially impressed by the woman's mode of travel.

One commented: "Roller skating in a cemetery playing saxophone…love the vibes."

Another joked: "What a lovely soul! I hope someone does this for me when I'm a bag of dust and bones."

The cemetery in Syracuse is filled with gravesites, with some dating back to before the civil war.

Last year, Gina Cooke, of the Central New York Ghost Hunters, told CNY Central that she thought the site was "haunted."

She told the website that the group had received "multiple reports" of spooky activity at the graveyard.

Ms Cooke added: "People have reported seeing white light and orbs near the graves especially in the old original cemetery."
