Thanks for posting this @Leonard Scaper   a flash mob coming together for "The Hymn Of Joy"  different than Chicago's flash mobs (or pretty much any major American city)  I try not to watch the news anymore. This is very uplifting.

btw,  I am moving to the Eastern Shore of Maryland  due once again to the  wife's transfer.  It will temporally put a damper on creativity.

What an incredible good heart you have @Leonard Scaper , to take hope from this flash mob.

And I really hope you wont be angry with me as I try to put all this in European perspective.

Som, in Catalan (language), is found all over the place. Som Republica. We are a republic. Since they want their marriage with Spain to end.
Som means 'we are'.
Som Sabadell means we are the Sabadell Bank.
Som ING, Som Chase Manhattan, pretty much just that.

It's beautifully done and in clips like this one, I give extra attention to how children are reacting to the music. That makes it all worth while.

In Russia, there are some thing left to be desired. But what is really developed to crazy perfection are flash mobs. And sometimes it's filmed:


or even better:

There is a girl wiping away a tear behind her purse at 2'00". Don't know where you could do this.
This is music that will make you thrill (smiley).

But thank you for posting the Some Sabadell clip. Beautiful. Whatever their intentions were.
BTW, when my oldest son was about 17, he and his class did tableaus vivants (living sculptures) on the Dam, the central square in Amsterdam.
But with people like you around, leonard, there IS hope for us all.
Kind regards, Gus

Wow, Gus! @LePlongeur ...that second one is SO powerful! Amazing watching the people getting drawn into it. We are all people....all of us.

Thanks for posting those.

Hey @Vince I have spent some time on the eastern shore of Maryland.....floating my canoe on the Sassafras River. Hold on to that creativity!!
