Random Acts of Culture

According to their website, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, with the assistance of local partners, plans to produce 1,000 Random Acts of Culture over the next three years.  Locations planned for the events are the cities of Akron, Ohio; Charlotte, N.C.; Detroit, Michigan; Macon, Georgia; Miami, Florida; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Jose, California, and St. Paul, Minnesota. Two of these events occurred recently, the first on October 27, 2010, featuring the Opera Company of Philadelphia  at Macy's. Most recently, on November 13th, Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale surprised audiences in San Jose, California.  

A video of each of these spontaneous performances can be viewed on the Random Acts of Culture website. Be sure your speakers are turned up!
