Hallelujah Chorus Goes Viral In A Niagara, Ontario Shopping Mall

It Was Five Years Ago & A Moment Well Worth Reprising For The Holiday Season

A Brief Intro by NAL publisher Doug Draper

Posted December 23, 2016 on Niagara At Large

All I can say is if there were more episodes like the one I am about to repost here on Youtube, I would go out to shopping malls more often.

But there are few episodes as warm and moving – in a real community-like way – like this one, which is one of the excuses I give to my wife and others for avoiding most shopping malls completely, unless there is a good sale in a book or record store inside.

At any rate, this episode was captured in the food court inside the Seaway Mall in Welland, Ontario by Niagara filmmaker Vickie Fagan, and became an international hit on Youtube, with the very fine musicial organization Chorus Niagara leading anyone and everyone within earshot in the mall in a rousing performance of the Hallelujah Chorus.

  1. This and many of the You Tube flash mobs are inspiring and beautiful. Other good ones are “Welcome Home” at Heathrow in London and “Doe a deer” in Amsterdam. They make people smile. They are what life should be about.


  2. Thanks Doug. We need all the positive moments, so I have forwarded. Only 6 years ago. How times have changed.
