During a recent performance of “Requiem” by Brahms at the St. Louis symphony, demonstrators surprised audience members when they interrupted the orchestra with a song for Michael Brown, the Ferguson teenager murdered by Darren Wilson of the Ferguson police department back in August of this year.


The signs that they were displaying from the balcony read: “A Requiem for Mike Brown,” “Racism Lives Here” and a big sign of a drawing of Michael’s face showing 1996-2014, the years of the 18 year old’s birth and death, this was a flash mob of sorts focusing on social justice that ended with the echoes of “Black Lives Matter.”


In fact some in the audience joined in with affirmation while others looked dazed and confused at what was going on!
