The Copenhagen Philharmonic really knows how to make a subway commute more beautiful. Musicians took over a train car during what looks like the morning rush hour, and gave riders a surprise performance of “Morning Mood” from the Peer Gynt suite (aka the music that plays any time a cartoon shows a sunrise).
The idea here was to promote classical music, not train travel, but this kind of synchronicity is another benefit of public transit. When’s the last time a flash-mob philharmonic showed up in your car?
