Beethoven, Unity, and a Flash Mob in a Fish Market

Hobart Earle, the Odessa Philharmonic, and the Odessa Opera Chorus performed Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" (which is also the EU's anthem), via flash mob at the very busy Privoz Fish Market this week. It was both a musical and a political statement. See the impressive result and the crowd's enthusiastic reaction in the video here (coverage from WQXR-FM).
