Musicians commit "Random Acts of Culture"

With the help of local partners, Knight Foundation will produce 1,000 Random Acts of Culture over the next three years in eight cities: Akron, Ohio; Charlotte, N.C.; Detroit, Mich.; Macon, Ga.; Miami, Fla.; Philadelphia, Pa.; San Jose, Calif. and St. Paul, Minn.

Those who don’t happen upon a performance can get that sense of awe online: Videos of the performances are available at

Funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Random Acts of Culture series brings classical artists out of the performance halls and into the streets and our everyday lives. Think Mozart at the Food Court. A tango in an airport terminal. Or in Saturday’s case, the Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah orchestrated by the Opera Company of Philadelphia.
