Shoppers Surprised by Random Act of Culture

On Saturday, October 30th, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia kicked off National Opera Week by partnering with John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Macy’s to produce one of Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” on a grand scale in Philadelphia.  With the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus as a core, over 650 singers from area choirs, accompanied by the famed Wanamaker Organ – the world’s largest pipe organ – surprised shoppers at the Center City Philadelphia Macy's. You can view the Video here. The Opera Company also performed a Random Act of Culture last April, with 30 members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia singing La traviata at the Reading Terminal Market Italian Festival.  That video just recently clocked 3 million views on youtube.
