Random Acts of Culture are making quite a national impression. After surprising shoppers with a 650-person performance of Hallelujah in Philadelphia (the YouTube video has 5 million hits and counting), Knight partnered with the Florida Grand Opera and the Arsht Center to surprise shoppers at the Macy’s shoe department in the Dadeland Mall in Kendall with six performances of “Toreador” from Carmen.

Knight Foundation is funding 1,000 Random Acts of Culture over the next three years in eight cities, as a way to bring classical artists out of the performance halls and into our everyday lives. Check out for more.
