"Flash Mob"

At the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum on December 3, 2013 (hat tip to Bloviating Zeppelin):


A Christmas surprise!

The blurb at YouTube:
Starting with a single cellist on the floor of the National Air and Space Museum's "Milestones of Flight" gallery, and swelling to 120 musicians, The U.S. Air Force Band exhilarated museum visitors with its first-ever flash mob. The four-minute performance featured an original arrangement of "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring/Joy to the World," led by the band's commander and conductor, Col. Larry H. Lang. Unsuspecting museum visitors including tourists and school groups were astonished as instrumentalists streamed into the gallery from behind airplanes and space capsules, and vocalists burst into song from the Museum's second floor balcony.

  1. Excellent! Though given the speedy removal of the Nativity from Shaw AFB at the behest of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Colonel Lang can probably expect to be court-martialed and cashiered by the end of the week for his selection of melodies.

  2. Awesome and uplifting video! Unfortunately V is probably right though. Roughed, cuffed, and duck-walked to the brig for going rogue.

  8. Superbly-crafted, highly-skilled, well-rehearsed, beautifully choreographed arrangement of Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring combined with Joy to the World. which has always been attributed to G.F. Handel.

    When it comes to music, I have always maintained that giving the public what it NEEDS, instead of what it has been brainwashed by the Marxian enemedia culture to imagine it WANTS, will produce superior, wholly admirable results.

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

    And keep remembering always:

    JESUS DOESN'T WANT YOU to LET the BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN.

    SO BE OF GOOD CHEER
    GRIN FROM EAR TO EAR
    MAKE JOY LAST ALL YEAR
    CHEER DRIVES OUT FEAR.


    The forces of Darkness don't WANT you to be happy. Satan withers at the sight of a smiling face, and the sound of joyful laughter. Satan will always mock, scorn and insult you, do all he can to destroy your confidence and make you doubt yourself, your loved ones, your home, your country, the value of your very life. Satan has no sense of humor, no sense of fair play, and no purpose other than destruction.

    Satan WANTS you to be perpetually annoyed, offended, affronted, insulted, furious, forever accusing others of wrongdoing, and frightened half to death.

    DARE to SMILE in the face of HORROR.
    DARE to LAUGH at unjust ACCUSATIONS
    DARE to SEE the ASININITY in FEMINAZIS
    DARE to LAUGH at the COMPLAINTS of ACTIVISTS
    DARE to LOVE LIFE and EMBRACE its CHALLENGES.

    "RESIST the DEVIL and HE WLL FLEE from YOU"

    NOWELL! NOWELL! NOWELL! NOWELL!
    BORN is the KING of ISRAEL!
