Bird in Hand Farm

Bird in Hand Farm is an imaginary place.

This made me cry the first time I watched it.

It happened at Macy's in Philadelphia on Saturday, October 30th.  Macy's is in the Wanamaker Building and is home to the Wanamaker Organ.  It was organized by the Philadelphia Opera and the Knight Foundation.  There are 650 singers comprised of the opera and many local choirs.  

I was going to wait until Black Friday to post this, but it is too good to hold onto.  I love the contrast of the commercialism of the season with the Arts and the religious message of the piece.  Sometimes, I need reminders to appreciate the Arts in my community.  This was a good one.

  1. that was awesome -- we live life at such a low level -- oh that there would be more such events to interrupt our mundane activities and remind us that we were made for so much more!
