advent-three-candles-featured-w480x300Over the last several years, we have seen a rise in spontaneous gatherings of individuals, often prompted and coordinated through social media, that appear suddenly  in a public place to perform some form of entertainment or satire, only to melt back into the crowd when done.

We call these gatherings, flash mobs. Sometimes these performances are the result of more planning and coordination. We are generally captivated and often inspired by the performance. The modern lexicon has taken to calling these “more professionally organized” gatherings, smart mobs.

Whichever name you prefer, you will not want to miss this moving, impressive Christmas performance by a flash mob consisting of members of the United States Air Force Band. More than six minutes of complex music without sheet music performed in the Air and Space Museum! Enjoy…
