Holiday travel kicked up a notch this year as Random Acts of Culture ™ arrived at Miami International Airport. On Monday, November 22 (Thanksgiving week), five performers from the Miami Music Project surprised travelers with spontaneous performances of Leonard Bernstein’s Maria and America from West Side Story. MMP performed eight separate Random Acts of Culture ™ throughout the day – a new project record.

In other Random Acts of Culture ™ news, our Philadelphia performance featuring 650 choral singers singing Hallelujah hit the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer and is nearing the 6 million mark on You Tube.

Why Does Knight Foundation Fund Random Acts of Culture™? Knight Foundation, like its founders Jack and Jim Knight, focuses on promoting informed and engaged communities. To that end, we strongly believe in the potential of the arts to engage residents, and bring a community together. Hearing Handel, or seeing the tango in an unexpected place provides a deeply felt reminder of how the classics can enrich our lives. As you’ll see in our videos, the performances make people smile, dance, grab their cameras – even cry with joy. For those brief moments, people going along in their everyday lives are part of a shared, communal experience that makes their community a more vibrant place to live. In these days of shrinking audiences, we also hope that these random acts will encourage people to attend traditional performances. We can’t promise it. But it’s hard to watch what unfolds during a Random Act of Culture®, and not be inspired to see and hear more
