Unexpected Joy

Visitors to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. got an early Christmas present Tuesday. A single cellist took a seat in the middle of the lobby and began to play. He was soon joined by 120 other members of the United States Air Force Band (full disclosure: my terrific son-in-law, Josh Cullum, is a member).

The musicians filed in gradually from behind museum exhibits and the crowd. They were then joined by brass and vocalists who filled the museum’s second floor balcony. The six-minute performance climaxed with a rousing version of “Joy to the World.” You may find a full list of the Band’s holiday performances in the Washington, D.C. area here.

You may see video of the performance below.
