To Gladden the Heart
One of the things I love about flashmobs is the slowly dawning joy you see in the faces of the people watching as they realize what they are witnessing. Here is Beethoven's Syphony No. 9, presented in the Catalonian city of Sabadell by Banco Sabadell. Participants include the Valles Symphony Orchestra and the choirs of Lieder, the Friends of the Opera, and the Choral Belles Arts.
There is something so uplifting and infectious about this kind of pleasure.
It's the sort of thing that makes you feel good about the human race. If only we could have more of it in our world.
