Joshua Bell, Street Musician

Very interesting story about an experiment done by the Washington Post. They asked violinist Joshua Bell to play during morning rush hour in D.C. as a street musician:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/04/AR2007040401721.html?hpid=artslotYou can even listen to the entire performance. We recently moved from Bloomington, Indiana where Joshua Bell grew up and first studied violin.

  1. I chanced upon this story at the blog of the ‘Saw Lady’, a NYC subway musician, a while back. You might find her unique point of view interesting – http://www.SawLady.com/blog
    Personally I think Bell did this as a publicity stunt – it got everybody to talk about him, even people who have not heard about him before 🙂
