Thanks, PF. I love that kind of thing. I used to be in a women's barbershop group. It was fun to sing in WalMart or Union Station. We didn't do it flash mob style, but that would have been fun.

Thank you for that PF.

What a great way to teach kids to appreciate classical music. There was nothing stuffy about it. The kids didn't have to sit still.

I love the quick glimpse of the guy who looks like Billy Connolly. The look of wonder and joy on his face was great. Of course the kids were great.

For those of you who would like to know. That was Ode To Joy from the Ninth Symphony by Beethoven. The words are by Shiller.

Thanks PF. That was one of my lullaby's growing up. We didn't have pop music. My father always had a record of classical music playing. And when I was learning the piano, it was always classical music. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This reminds me of Ravel's Bolero. It starts our very softly with one reed instrument playing the one theme over and over and by the end of the piece the whole orchestra is playing it in full. When it is played in it entirety, it goes into reverse and just the one reed instrument is playing and the last notes the whole orchestra plays the last four notes with an explosion. I love to watch the maestro leading this piece.

PF, you have me searching YouTube for more pieces so I can listen to them. Thanks.

When I watched this on YouTube, it showed a link to the Copenhagen Symphony Orchestra doing a flashmob thing at the main train station in Copenhagen. They played Bolero. Bolero de Ravel - estación Central de Copenhague (flashmob) - YouTube I don't know why the text is in Spanish.
