Operatic flashmobbing for Voices In The Forest

johnboy 29 October 2012 6

It’s a short road from subversive to utterly co-opted by the establishment. Flashmobbing appears to have had a harder ride than most things.

Either way Content Group have been out opera bombing around Canberra and have shared the fruits of their labours.

Many Canberrans found themselves in the right place at the right time today, enjoying an impromptu performance by some of Canberra’s best classical singers. They were promoting this year’s Voices in the Forest concert, taking place at the National Arboretum on Saturday 24 November.

With thanks to the Capital Region Farmers Market, Canberra Girls Grammar School and the traders at Manuka Lawns.

I was ready to rip this effort however it won me over , I will be there as long as they don’t thank Manuka lawns on the day again! Really Manuka lawn’s everything you’ve done for us.

Possibly the worst gig since Salmon Hater or Pear Shaped Underground or Booborowie Boys Brass Band.

Totally cheating to lay over a studio recording, sorry!

That sounded absolutely horrific in person, the amp was clipping constantly and the speaker was overdriven, fortunately for me I was headed down the back when they kicked off so didn’t have to tolerate the full volume of it, and had a slightly freer run at the vendors.

Whatever one thinks of flashmobs, this was lovely singing. (Flash ensembles?)
