Random Acts of Culture

Today’s New York Times has an article on “Random Acts of Culture,” a wildly successful program begun by the Knight Foundation to “weave the arts into the fabric of the community.”  Their biggest hit so far (with more than seven million views on YouTube) is a performance of Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus organized by the Philadelphia Opera in the Grand Court of Macy’s Center City, Philadelphia. It involved 650 singers from 28 different organizations and the world’s largest pipe organ. Here it is. Enjoy -- it’s a real upper!
