In much the same way as Billy Joel storming Lenin’s Square in Moscow with “Movin’ Out,” the New York Philharmonic Orchestra made a trip to North Korea and performed in the communist county last night.
The world-famous symphony was greeted with a standing ovation both before and after the concert.
In an effort to thaw relationship between the United States and North Korea, the New York group thought it would make the first move and bring a little music to the craziness of the nuclear stalemate between the two countries.
Judging by their embrace by the North Korean people, the job was a success.
Leave it to music, the international language, to continue bringing the world together.
