Thanks to my friend, Johnny, for sending this to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Apparently, there is a campaign that has been launched by the Knight Foundation in 8 cities in America called "1000 Random Acts of Culture," to increase awareness and appreciation of the arts. In this one particular Random Act of Culture, the Opera Company of Philadelphia showed up at Macy's, all dressed in plain clothes so as not to be noticed as a group, and broke into Handel's Halleluja Chorus. It is fantastic! And so completely moving.
