Random Act of Culture

"Just this past weekend, shoppers at the the Macy's in Philadelphia (the old Wanamaker building) were surprised when over 600 choristers who were there mingling with regular shoppers suddenly burst into Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. It's pretty awesome.

The Opera Company of Philadelphia was instrumental in bringing it together to perform one of the Knight Foundation's "1000 Random Acts of Culture" which they'll be doing over the next three years across the country. Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ - the world's largest pipe organ - the singers burst into song at exactly noon."

How cool of this company to do this. Random acts of culture, what a novel idea. LOVE it.

About the question you asked in the comment section of my blog, email me Sassy, and I can give you some ideas. I couldn't find an email address anywhere on your blog. There's a link on the left side of mine. Happy Monday!!
