I wish someone would surprise me with an orchestra playing outside my window.
Flash mobs don’t have to be about dancing.
On May 2, 2011, the Copenhagen Philharmonic surprised commuters at the Copenhagen Central Train Station, as they played in an orchestral “flash mob,” performing Ravel’s famed Bolero, with the musicians gradually assembling in place as the work progressed. I love this.

I love musical flash mobs. This is one of my favorites: http://youtu.be/cz8LvlNxxnw

The best part is when they all walk off in different directions afterwards like nothing happened, leaving the people to stare after them….=D

omg i loved this.¬† bolero is one of my favorite classical pieces.¬† i always enjoy how the solo snare drum builds up to a full-bodied orchestral crescendo (maganda din itong soundtrack¬†for sex!).¬† reminded me of my days scriptwriting for DZFE, a classical music station.¬† this is a¬†great way of bringing classical pieces to the masses.¬† and i loved how the audience was super appreciative.¬†¬†wouldn’t it be so nice to see something like here in the Phils.?

As much as I just wanted to temporarily watch the video as I have other things to do online, I was totally enthralled by the music that I had to continue watching it. Ya think the same would happen in Manila? Would the people react in the same way? Just a thought. Loved every second.
