King of Kings

Two years ago, on October 30, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia (OCP) brought together over 650 choristers from 28 participating organizations to perform one of the Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” at Macy’s in Center City Philadelphia.
Accompanied by the Wanamaker Organ – the world’s largest pipe organ – the OCP Chorus and throngs of singers from the community infiltrated the store as shoppers, and burst into the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s “Messiah” at 12 noon, to the delight of surprised shoppers.
This event is one of 1,000 “Random Acts of Culture” to be funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation over the next three years. The initiative transports the classical arts out of the concert halls and opera houses and into our communities to enrich our everyday lives.

I prefer to call it a foretaste of the Glory of God.

I’m so glad people carry cameras to capture these glorious moments. Thanks you, Trail Dust!


Wait a minute, was this the official post from Trail Dust?
Hooray and welcome to the Rabitt hole.

I changed the official author of that and 3 other of Trail Dust’s former guest posts, to Trail Dust, because he just accepted our formal invitation to join our band of writers! I am so happy. 😀
Please welcome our new fellow!


TD, just do like me in training. Close your eyes and hit lots of buttons. LOL
Don’t let it frustrate you as sometimes WordPress just has a mind of its own.
Great to have you aboard. Merry Christmas.
