Random Act of Culture

This is just way too cool. With all the flash mob activity and such, it is interesting (to me) to see a cultured flash mob.

On Saturday, October 30, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia brought together over 650 choristers from 28 participating organizations to perform one of the Knight Foundation's "Random Acts of Culture" at Macy's in Center City Philadelphia. Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ - the world's largest pipe organ - the OCP Chorus and throngs of singers from the community infiltrated the store as shoppers, and burst into a pop-up rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's "Messiah" at 12 noon, to the delight of surprised shoppers.

  1. Having sung that (alto), I'll admit to shivers while I watched that. Wish I could have experienced it in person!
