On Saturday, October 30, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia brought together over 650 choristers from 28 participating organizations to perform one of the Knight Foundation's "Random Acts of Culture" at Macy's in Center City Philadelphia. Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ - the world's largest pipe organ - the OCP Chorus and throngs of singers from the community infiltrated the store as shoppers, and burst into a pop-up rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's "Messiah" at 12 noon, to the delight of surprised shoppers.

I just Googled up the official video of this event, credibly described by one observer as “The Event of a Lifetime.” I think that’s an understatement even though I've sung in numerous choirs and watched the Mormon Tabernacle Choir perform live in the Tabernacle. Try to imagine being a Macy's shopper when this broke out from the abnormally large crowd surrounding you. Just the thought of that experience made me shed some tears.

Here’s the link.

Imagine being there, and enjoy.

The ACLU sent old Sir George Handel their best wishes and thanks for the nice score.

You idiot.
