Another Week, Another Flashmob

Turns out I am not the only one who thinks flashmobs are just great! I got several emails from friends who agreed with me that last week's feature, of an orchestra and chorus doing the "Ode to Joy" from Beethoven's Ninth was one of the best flashmobs they had ever seen. The combo of such a staple of the classical repertoire performed in such a different style is just plain fun. But, this one, sent by a friend, may even be better. Hard to top a couple hundred Russians trying hard to look like Gary Cooper.
