Joining a Flashmob


On our recent cruise aboard the P & O ship Azura, I was delighted to find one of the activities we could take part in was an onboard ship’s choir, the Azura Singers. We met to practice a selection of songs from the musicals, including a selection from Fiddler on the Roof and Les Miserables.

A concert was planned for the evening of the first sea day after leaving our final port of call, Gibraltar, and our MD Laura-Jane asked us if we would like to do a flash mob that morning to advertise the concert.

A flash mob, for those of you unfamiliar with the concept, is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment. There have been many You tube videos of singing flash mobs, one of the most famous being the T Mobile  flashmob at Liverpool St Station, and the Hallelujah chorus in a US shopping mall.


About three quarters of the 40 strong choir joined the flash mob in the main atrium of the Azura, joining shoppers who got more than a bargain as they were browsing the onboard shops! The crowd were certainly surprised and it resulted in a full house for the evening concert.
