Time Out for Beauty: “Ode to Joy” Flashmobbed

Yes it’s a flashmob commercial and for Banco Sabadell, a Spanish bank. No doubt they need all the good PR they can get. No matter, ’tis lovely and moving. From Open Culture:

Earlier this summer, the bank brought together 100 musicians and singers from the Orchestra Simfonica del Valles,Amics de l’Opera de Sabadell,Coral Belles Arts, and Cor Lieder Camera to perform the anthem of the European Union — Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” from his Symphony No. 9. It all happens in the Plaça de Sant Roc in Sabadell, Spain, a little north of Barcelona.
