Ode to Joy

January 23rd, 2013

Flash-mob in Belgium of the EU national anthem: Beethoven’s fabulous Ode to Joy, with the rousing chorus line ‘All men (and women – Beethoven was very PC) shall be brothers…’

  1. It’s funny because I started smiling and laughing out loud watching those children with their very own joy! The little girl in red on the pole was a gem! It really comes up and out of the heart doesn’t it? Truely an ” Ode to Joy! Wonderful way to start the day! Thanks for sharing ~

  2. Brilliant …And such a poignant example of the power of music in our lives… today!

    Thanks for posting this, Philip; will share…

  3. I showed this to the Small People who live here the other day … my stepdaughter loved the children conducting the orchestra, and as she and her brother were walking away, talking about the video I overheard my stepson saying, “I just really liked the music.” Me, I had a huge grin on my face and tears in my eyes. Such overwhelming joy and beauty.
