Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” – Spain   Leave a comment


“Flashmob performances haven’t been a fresh concept for some time. And they’ve been somewhat taken over by corporations during recent years. But that doesn’t stop viewers from enjoying the performances, whether in person or on the web. Take this recent example orchestrated by the financially-challenged Spanish bank, Banco Sabadell.

“Earlier this summer, the bank brought together 100 musicians and singers from the Orchestra Simfonica del Valles,Amics de l’Opera de Sabadell,Coral Belles Arts, and Cor Lieder Camera to perform the anthem of the European Union — Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” from his Symphony No. 9. It all happens in the Plaça de Sant Roc in Sabadell, Spain, a little north of Barcelona. Perhaps this will put a smile on your face. Maybe you’ll even shed a tear. One way or another, make sure you turn up your speakers….
