Copenhagen Phil Goes Viral With Symphony Flash Mob

Here at Social Times we love flash mobs and we’re so excited to share the latest flash mob extravaganza with you—the Copenhagen Phil’s symphony flash mob at Copenhagen Central Station.  Members of the world-famous Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra gathered at the largest train station in Denmark to surprise travelers with a flash rendition of Ravel’s Bolero.

It begins with a lone snare drummer and a flutist.  A violinist and cellist join in, followed by a bassoon and an oboe and, before you know it, the train station is filled with a full symphony orchestra playing an amazing free concert.  How amazing would it be to have been there?  Wow.

According to YouTube Trends, the video “has drawn some attention overseas and [is] spreading in the U.S. today on Google+.”  It has garnered a quarter of a million views so far and is sure to continue climbing the YouTube charts as the day progresses.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.  How does this compare to other flash mobs you’ve seen?  What’s your favorite flash mob?  We’d love to hear your thoughts!
