Flashmob choir harmonises vs. Shell at Southbank Centre, 1.3.13

On the evening of Friday 1st March 2013, a group of singers and musicians called "Shell Out Sounds" (SOS) made an unexpected musical intervention at the Southbank Centre, during the interval of a Shell-sponsored performance by members of the Berliner Philharmoniker and guests. The 16-strong "flashmob choir" sang a sombre version of "Down to the River to Pray", the lyrics rewritten to depict the sadness and woe Shell inflicts on the world. The group handed out flyers to audience members, many of whom stopped to listen and applauded at the end of the song. The Southbank Centre security guards did not attempt to stop the surprise performance.
