Flash-Mob at the Mall

The American Festival Chorus surprised "Black Friday" shoppers with a short Christmas carol, flash-mob style.  The piece, Ding Dong Merrily on High, was specially arranged by Kurt Bestor for the choir.

The Black Friday craze turned a bit more enthusiastic at the Cache Valley Mall as about 150 people suddenly began performing a holiday song in front of an audience of nearly 1,000.

The song was an original arrangement of the English carol, “Ding Dong Merrily on High”, and took 100 people to produce, from dancers to musicians. This included the Westminster Bell Choir as well the Celtic Dancers of the Valley.

Great Performance! The technical aspects are interesting. Our bowed string quartet is playing a C & W arrangement of it at the end of a wedding just before Christmas. Keep Christ in Christmas!

Would love to see something like this in Kansas in smaller towns like Salina, Hutchinson, Hays. This is so unique and beautiful for the Holidays.
