Best flash mob ever

Taking the concept of a flash mob to the next level, the entire Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra makes an appearance at Copenhagen Central Station, and wows the crowd with Ravel’s most famous piece.

What I want to know is, how does one casually stroll through a train station while carting around a set of tympani?

    Actually, tympani not so hard, since they’re on wheels. Our community band carted them all over the place and the worst part was getting them into the bed of the pickup. I was more impressed with the clarinetist–it takes a lot of courage to piece an instrument together and blaze right into a solo without tuning first. He must’ve been off-platform, warmed up and ready to play, before putting his instrument back in the case to walk out and join the flutist.

    ‘Bout like it is with a sousaphone…not very easily. I love those flash mob videos.

    Way cool! Loved seeing the family sitting down to watch, the little kids swaying to the music, and the musicians able to ‘groove’ a little bit as they played, which I would imagine is difficult for most of them under normal performance circumstances. Thanks for sharing.
