Hallelujah Chorus

Have you seen on youtube the "flash mob" perfomance (a Random Act of Culture) of the Hallelujah Chorus at Macy's in Centre City, Phladelphia. Now we could totally do that in the Meridian or Wall Street, apart from the small technical hitch of not having a rather large organ apparently permanently sited in the mall.

There are a number of versions, but if you check out http://www.youtube.com/user/cardifflodge, you'll spot the bass who hadn't actually learnt it off by heart!


Which reminds me.... there's no Messiah listed in next year's music. I do hope that's an oversight.... Even if the Town Hall is out of action, we could do two performances in two smaller venues - I 'd be happy to offer First Church! (Just give me time to clear it with Session first...)

Thanks Anne, this is great! I love these culture in the community events. I've taken the liberty of embedding the video in your post.

Yes, I also wondered about Messiah in 2011, but perhaps the decision has not yet been made. Fingers crossed... Perhaps you could make the offer to Deborah?
