“Ode to Joy”  Tokyo flashmob

Hi All -

This is a departure from the usual movie dance sequence. To celebrate the season, here is a Flashmob in a Tokyo shopping mall performing the final movement of Beethoven’s 9th symphony; “Ode to Joy.” I always thought of this piece as quintessentially German, but seeing all those Japanese folks enthusiastically playing Ludwig Von and singing Schiller has made me reassess. Enjoy.

Best holiday wishes,
