On Saturday, May 26, 2012, members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and Orchestra visited IKEA Philadelphia and showed DIY shoppers that in the IKEA Marketplace, you can find what you need to make a dresser, a bedframe — or beautiful music by Mozart!
Opera Company of Philadelphia Composer in Residence Lembit Beecher arranged the famous Papageno-Papagena duet from The Magic Flute for piccolo and found percussion.
The performance is one of 1,000 Random Acts of Culture taking place nationally during a three-year period funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Knight Foundation’s Random Acts of Culture bring artists out of the performance halls and into the streets and our everyday lives.
