At noon on Oct. 30, 2010, shoppers in the historic Wanamaker Building (Macy's Center City department store) were suddenly serenaded by the Opera Company of Philadelphia, together with the Wanamaker pipe organ, the largest operating pipe organ in the world. What a treat!! Thanks Opera Co. of Philadelphia for this "Random Act of Culture"!!!

(Note - I missed the last seconds when my camera battery died; so sorry!)

Update: Thanks to randyp19070 who informed me that it wasn't just the Opera Company of Philadelphia singing. They organized it and several dozen area choirs participated, including the Philadelphia Chorus (Raquel Garcia, director), to the tune of 683 singers! OCP in turn was working with a national organization called the Knight Foundation which is trying to commit 1000 "random acts of culture" nationwide.
