Happy birthday, Giuseppe

In honor of the birthday of Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), here is the “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore, performed for an unsuspecting lunch hour crowd at a shopping mall in Tel Aviv by members of the Israel Philharmonic.

      Same here, since I sang it with the Spokane Symphony Chorale. I still remember it after all these decades. Great fun!

      Pity I’ll never experience something like this, as I seldom go to malls and never hang around in them unless forced to (by circumstances, my wife dislikes them as well!)
