Ukelele Orchestra

Hopefully you can hear this if you're in the US.

It's the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain. I might just have to take up the Uke after hearing this.

In the middle of the show there was some audience participation with The Ode to Joy, Beethoven. Even though I was listening to the show in the comfort of my own home, my eyes started welling up with tears. On the news there's so many negative things, people banding together for war and hatred and angry and violent mobs that it's really uplifting to hear a crowd making music together and being happy together.

    This really was something! I love the internet - I get exposed to all kinds of new things. I only made it halfway through, but you're right, the Ode to Joy was really moving. And not just in that luau kind of way.
