The Halleluiah Chorus

The Knight Foundation funds arts projects that promote not only the enrichment of certain communities but also the engagement of those communities.  They have art contests and help to digitize museum collections.  They also have the Random Acts of Culture program that brings fine art to the general population, instead of waiting for them to come to the fine art.

Well, you know me and music, right?  This video surfaced on YouTube and I dare you to watch and listen and NOT get goose bumps!  Yes, the music is Handel’s Halleluiah Chorus but this was actually performed this year on October 30th in Philadelphia, so you may see Halloween decorations at Macy’s.

They are helping to produce 1,000 of these Random Acts of Culture over the next 3 years.  My bet is that we see a lot more of these videos on YouTube and I’m looking forward to seeing them all.
