The Sound of Music, Belgium Style

My wife, Kathy, is about the biggest fan of The Sound of Music you will find. She must have seen it a hundred times. One of her friends sent this link to her, it is pretty cool. The information with the YouTube clip says:

More than 200 dancers were performing their version of "Do Re Mi", in the Central Station of Antwerp. with just 2 rehearsals they created this amazing stunt! Those 4 fantastic minutes started the 23 of march 2009, 08:00 AM. It is a promotion stunt for a Belgian television program, where they are looking for someone to play the leading role, in the musical of "The Sound of Music".

  1. I love "The Sound of Music" as well! And this video made me want to jump up and join in in my own kitchen. Some years ago we attended a TSOM movie and sing-along that was truly magical.

  3. Like Gwen, it gave me goosebumps. People just forgetting all of their stress and worries and having fun. Then watching everyone else stand back, smile and clap and bebop was just wonderful!

  7. Has Dominica seen this, she lives in Antwerp.
    I saw the Sound of Music when it came out in the theater, and have the VHS. It's one of my all time favorites.

  8. Tell your wife she should come and see the production of Sound of Music playing here, it's really good, honest!

    You can't help but feel really good seeing this video. Unless you're dead.
