COOS BAY, Ore. -- Customers at the Farmers Market got a little surprise Wednesday afternoon when a flash mob broke out.

It featured members of the South Coast Folk Society.

They recently got funding from the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Oregon Community Foundation worth more than $24,000 combined.

The funds will pay for a permanent folk orchestra on the south coast.

"We are so excited! We love to play music; we're always looking for opportunities to play more music,” South Coast Folk Society president Jennifer Sordy said. “To actually do something of this scope and nature, 25 musicians all together in a band is a big deal to us. This means that we can keep folk arts alive and happening down here on the coast."

The musicians will rehearse over the next six months for a concert in June of next year.
