Flash Orchestra

November 21, 2013

Walking around New York streets at any time during day or night, you will hear music. A street beat will echo from the buildings or blast from the ear buds of the person squeezed close to you on the F train. There are violins deep in the subways and jazz pouring out of empty bars. It surrounds you here.

My newest dream, however, is to see this. A flash symphony in a main square with children squealing with delight and onlookers full of appreciation and admiration of nothing but music. All based off one little girl giving a coin to a man with a cello.

Banco Sabadell of Spain celebrated their 130th anniversary with style — a flash orchestra. Members of the Symphony Orchestra of the Valleys and choirs, Lieder and Amics of l’Opera and the Choir Belles Arts participated in the event; more than 100 people brought beautiful music to the streets. 

The video will give you goosebumps.
