    Updated:

    FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Boston Pops were honored by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this weekend. 

    The symphony orchestra is on a tour of florida and was joined by students of the high school to perform a song they wrote after 17 of their classmates were shot to death at the school last year. 

    Students performed with the orchestra to a standing ovation just a week before the Feb. 14 anniversary of the deadly shooting. 

    'Shine' was written shortly after the Parkland shooting by Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña, two students at the school. 

    The Pops will finish their six-concert, five-city tour on Thursday.
