Musical surprises in public places

Unexpected invasions of everyday life by operatic and oratorio music in:

Pamplona, Spain

Tel Aviv, Israel

Somewhere in Canada

These three happenings all took place in restaurants and food courts—a well-chosen venue for this sort of thing, if one thinks about it a moment. And all three videos are delightful to watch as well as listen to, since they combine little social dramas with the musical performances.

(Thanks to my sister Marcy and to Gene at Harry's Place for the tips.)
