Flash Mobbing Beethoven

Over the past year, I've chronicled here the global phenomenon of flash mob musicians (and often singers) performing Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," to wild reactions in, for example, Spain, Lithuania, and Hartford, CT.   Now I've found (see below) possibly the best of all, so far, in Hong Kong, under the banner of "Ode to Change."  But the flash mobs also take place in more modest venues such as a farmer's market in Austin, TX.   Or a high school.   Or a college, with dancers. All of this, of course, closely tied to our new film, Following the Ninth, which  screened in NY for a week this month, then opens in L.A. on November 22.  Bill Moyers has a segment on our film airing this weekend.
