What gifts are you sharing with the world?

On May 19, more than 100 members of the Vallès Symphony Orchestra and the choirs of Lieder and Friends of l’Opera and the Choral Belles Arts participated in this amazing “Flash Mob” in Sabadell, Spain. In celebration of the 130th anniversary of Banco Sabadell they performed Beethoven’s “Ode To Joy.”

Though it’s not really a flash mob, the clip is beautiful. I love how the musicians come together–a few at a time until the townsquare is overflowing with people. And I love how they’re all dressed in street clothes–as if, “oh, I just happened to be in the neighborhood…”

Music, like literature, lifts us out of ourselves and makes us want to be better. This five-minute video reminds me that we all have talents and gifts to offer others. What gifts are you currently sharing with the world? What gifts do you want to share?

  1. Everyone has talents in some form or another. I think that sharing gifts with others is an important part of life. A little gift here or there is important to show those around us that we do truly care about others. Whether its the gift of time, gift of knowledge or some other form of gift, everyone has something that they can do to make those around. I Like finding other peoples talents and then recommend them to others to get a really great gift for those they love. However, its always the simple things of kindness, friendship and loyalty that really count, no matter what the gift, its always the thought that has gone into it.
