Random Act of Culture

“On Saturday, October 30, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia brought together over 650 choristers from 28 participating organizations to perform one of the Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” at Macy’s in Center City Philadelphia. Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ - the world’s largest pipe organ - the OCP Chorus and throngs of singers from the community infiltrated the store as shoppers, and burst into a pop-up rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s “Messiah” at 12 noon, to the delight of surprised shoppers.”

Please take a moment out of the craziness of ‘the season’ and ponder the reason. I hope you enjoy…..Hallelujah at Macy’s.

Hi Thufer. Great Post! I saw this Wanamaker organ this past spring on a trip to Philadelphia. We found it completely by accident, ran into Macy's to buy socks, or something silly we had forgotten. Stayed for the recital of the organ.

Philadelphia is a great city.

I hope you are well. You are often in my thoughts.

Best regards.

Hi JG,

What a wonderful memory for you. That is awesome.

I have been somewhat sore lately, I pulled a mussel around my ribs somehow and to be honest, feels like I broke a rib but getting better.

Thank you for the kind thoughts.

Hey, this is off-topic, but go the Blog "Vintage Disneyland Tickets" (there is a link at Gorillas Don't Blog".

Look at todays post. He has a great black and white picture of the old parking lot and tram.

I know how much you enjoy those.
