Beethoven’s Ode to Joy Flash Mob Orchestra

Sharing with you guys one of the most beautifully performed flash mobs ever.

I think this would make a really fantastic idea for a wedding proposal. I can just imagine, since street performers are a thing now at Bonifacio High Street, it wouldn’t be out of place to find a person with a cello in the middle of the shopping district...

Alicia Keys is performing here in Manila on November 25! That’s on Monday, folks. And three lucky people are getting two tickets each to her concert, thanks to PLDT Home. All you have to do is check out the mechanics HERE.
