Fluters on Scooters? Beauty shared.

Dear Flute lovers,

Some of the most beautiful orchestral "Flash Mobs" I've seen this past year. And keep your eye out for the flutiest moments. They create angelic atmosphere, which is no small feat when riding in on a scooter.

Happy New Year!

Orchestral Extravaganzas

1. Guarenteed to make the softest hearted burst into tears: Ode To Joy in Catalonia:
Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l'Òpera and Coral Be
lles Arts choirs.


2. A soft morning commuter train moves through trails of flutey light: Peer Gynt on the train: In April 2012 Copenhagen Phil (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) surprised the passengers in the Copenhagen Metro by playing Grieg's Peer Gynt.

 Fashion Mall meets Camina Banana:

 "Carmina Burana" am Wiener Westbahnhof, 23. April 2012 mit Solistinnen, Chor und Orchester der Volksoper Wien

Wonderful! To liven up an otherwise ordinary day with unexpected music... makes me think about whether I should consider getting some friends together to create a flash mob of music locally! Have you done this?

Hi Franklin,
No I haven't played (yet) in a flash-mob situation, but now I really truly want to. Too wonderful.
Thanks for your comment. Jen

This is great! Thanks for sharing. The best part was watching little kids engage. They had so much fun, it seems, and felt free to participate. I will never forget my own experience of playing some Christmas carols with a band outside. It was 18F, and this young family pushed their way through the crowd. They had a 6mo baby girl, she didn't mind the cold at all but was bouncing to the music in her father's arms and singing. It was really hard to play with my fingers numb and not really covering the holes all that well, but watching that little baby having so much fun was definitely the best experience in my life!
