There is something so evocative about people making music together. I often cry when I make music with people and I often cry when I’m watching other people make beautiful music together. They’re joyful tears — cleansing, grateful, and unselfconscious.
I posted the Som Sabadell flashmob video last year, because it was so lovely. Then when I saw it again today (and, yes, cried just a little bit with the pleasure of the music and the joyful faces and the dancing children), I thought I’d post it to my blog, before realizing I already had. (I suppose this reveals I am a creature of habit!) I looked for another wonderful musical flashmob to share, and found the Copenhagen Phil performing Ravel. This one, too, is charming. Hope it starts off your day with a bit of happiness!
It would be sweet to make this a regular part of my blog (which will be more regularly attended to in 2013). If you have any music to share, please do. Let’s bring as much joy and delight to each other as we can this year! What do you say?
