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.
I just found out that my kids will be going to the same high school that Pat Metheny attended. So I am pleased. I also found out that you can listen to Pat Metheny music for free at his website! Just go to http://www.patmetheny.com/ and choose “Pat Metheny Radio” from the audio player in the lower left corner. Full tunes even.
