Leopold's Customers 'flash mobbed' by Savannah Voice Festival performers

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Customers at famed Leopold's Ice Cream got a different kind of treat Tuesday: An impromptu flash mob concert courtesy of The Savannah Voice Festival performers.

Some of the participants donned Leopold's trademark hats and aprons, masquerading as soda jerks before they belted into song.

Leopold's wasn't the only stop on the Flash Mob's tour Tuesday.  The troupe also made appearances at the Savannah Salt Table, 24e furniture store, and at City Market in front of Belford's restaurant.

"The chief goal of our whole entire festival is awareness. We want to make people aware of how wonderful this music is and share how much it provides to the community," said Chad Sonka, Savannah Voice Festival Education and Outreach.

Opera aficionados can enjoy a riveting performance of Il Barbiere di Sivglia (The Barber of Seville) tonight at The Charles H. Morris Center.  The performance begins at 6:30 p.m.   Tickets are still available for purchase online: www.savannahvoicefestival.org.
