Fancy a spot of Zadok the Priest to soundtrack your grocery shop? Of course you do. Watch our Handel flashmob in celebration of our 20th birthday.
For many of us, a trip to the supermarket isn't the most exciting or glamorous part of our day. So how would you feel if a mob of classical musicians descended on your shop?
Well, that's exactly what happened to an unsuspecting public in Morrisons in London when Classic FM set 18 musicians, 1 conductor and 8 singers with the task of surprising, entertaining and brightening the day of the shoppers and workers alike to celebrate Classic FM's 20th Birthday.
Shocked shoppers were drawn to the beautiful sound of Handel's Zadok the Priest as it rang out across the aisles, giving the public a unique performance of the first ever piece played on Classic FM.
