Orchestra Communities

I once wrote about the http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/som-sabadell-flashmob/ in Spain performing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”. An orchestra is a community, a strong community, maybe even with morality, with a certain readiness to take social responsibility. My friend Akbar Simonse introduced the orchestra of his Dutch hometown The Hague / Den Haag, The Netherlands, supporting a street musician:

  5. I think flash mobs are great. It takes a lot to perform in front of many people and hope that they do not get upset. These passengers look quite pleased to have the musicians playing. I would, too. Lovely song … great post.
