Choir without Borders
Flash mob with Paul Potts on the occasion of the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall

In honour of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Deutsche Telekom AG brought over 1000 people together in the main train station of Leipzig in order to perform a very special kind of flash mob. With the support of the world-famous tenor, Paul Potts, the Choir without Borders gave the European anthem, “Ode to Joy“, by Beethoven.

We orchestrated and recorded this due tribute to Leipzig, the city of heroes, which turned out to be a logistical challenge. But all the more impressive was the result: This unique initiative proved to be a memorable experience for all parties involved and was spread via various media and social networks with enormous response.
