Video: Orchestra Flash Mob Takes Over Bucharest Airport

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 - 05:46 PM

Romania is getting in on the flash mob action. Or at least its orchestra is.

The Bucharest Symphony Orchestra staged a flash mob in the departure lounge of Henri Coanda International Airport near Bucharest on Monday. Euro News released a video showing 40 musicians, disguised as pilots, cabin and ground staff, turning up to perform Shostakovich's Waltz No. 2.

No details were given as to why the orchestra chose the airport, although a close look at the ensemble's website reveals one of its sponsors to be a Romanian airline. A national television station also captured the performance, which included selections from Carmen.

Update: Below is the orchestra's finished flash mob video:
