I've had this bookmarked for about a year now ... and play it often. It's just gorgeous, beautiful.

I think I got it from someone who posted it here last year.

.....when you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity…you do not slam it shut behind you…you reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.

I love the surprised and grateful looks on the faces of the people in the plaza. Ode to Joy is a such an uplifting piece of music.

Here's another flashmob but very different music.

A few years ago I was in Macy's in Center City Philadelphia, when there was a flash mob. It was an opera company and they did Handel's Hallelujah chorus. It was one of the most moving things I've witnessed.

Beautiful!

I love these flash mobs sooooo much, and the classical music ones always move me to tears. I'm a big sap. {#emotions_dlg.wub}

It's been one of my deepest desires to be out and about somewhere, ANYWHERE, when a flash mob breaks out. I can't think of much that would bring more unexpected joy to one's day!
