The Sarasota Orchestra surprised passengers at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport with an impromptu musical flash mob Monday, Jan. 21, to entertain and demonstrate Sarasota Orchestra’s energy. In collaboration with SRQ, Principal Pops Conductor Andrew Lane and 32 musicians and orchestra staff dressed as passengers appeared spontaneously from all different corners of the airport. They formed a musical ensemble as people stood around and watched the show unveil right in front of them. The ensemble performed Bizet’s “Danse Boheme,” from “Carmen” Suite No. 2. The delighted crowd cheered and applauded in appreciation.
