As I watched the video below in my office this afternoon, tears came to my eyes. A couple weekends ago, shoppers at Macy's in Philadelphia were treated to a "Random Act of Culture" as the Opera Company of Philadelphia broke into an amazing perfomance of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. Over 600 choristers were mingling with the shoppers when they began to sing. (Just an observation: you'll notice that the woman wearing the headband with the "devil's horns" continued to work on the makeover she was giving after she got over the initial shock of the name of Messiah being proclaimed.) Chances are that such a performance will warrant arrest next year, so I hope those present enjoyed!
