What Started With One Man And A Cello Turned Into Something You Have To See

If you live in a city and you’ve ever spent time on the internet, you’re probably a little too familiar with street performers and flash mobs.

But you’ve never seen anything quite like this. While performers line city streets all over the world and flash mobs are characteristically entertaining, something unbelievable happens when the two of them collide.

Just ask the people who were in the right place at the right time when they walked through Spain’s Plaça de Sant Roc back on May 19, 2012.

When a little girl dropped some money into a cellist’s hat, passersby were treated to a spectacle that left everyone singing.

Although it was obviously a planned performance, there’s something wonderful about the fact that it all started with one musician, a curious child, and a single coin. In many ways, music is the tie that binds. Its immense reach embraces people from all walks of life.

Young Musicians Surprise Mall Goers With A Magical Flash Mob Performance.

Shoppers at the Pacific Place mall in Hong Kong got a magical surprise when the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra of Hong Kong gave a surprise flash mob performance.

This musical flash mob is one of the greatest I’ve ever seen, and even more so when you consider how young a lot of these talented kids are!

Everything about this is just so magical; how quickly they appear, perform so beautifully, and when it’s over, it’s over. They melt into the crowd. It’s almost like a “let down” because I wanted to hear more of that beautiful music.

The piece they were playing is a song about Hong Kong itself called Dong Fang Zhi Zhu (Pearl of the East) and was made popular by Chinese-American singer Fei Xiang (Kris Phillips)
