AHS Orchestra flash mobs the downtown mall

The AHS Orchestra created their own version of a flash mob on Oct. 13 at 11 AM just outside the Paramount Theater on the Downtown Mall.

Juniors Will Gooding on guitar and Quinn Egner on harp started by playing “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay before switching to “Don’t Stop Beliving” by Journey, with more and more strings joining in.

Towards the end of their performance, other students came out with a banner reading “Happy 250th Birthday C-ville.”

According to Orchestra director Carrie Finnegan the event was created with Albemarle County Schools Superintendent Dr. Pam Moran for, “community thanks and publicity.”
