Off Topic – Joshua Bell Plays Incognito in DC Subway

Couldn’t help myself. I won’t make too many off-topic posts, and I don’t know how long this link will last, but this is about what happened when Joshua Bell played his Stradivarius for 45 minutes in a Washington D.C. subway during rush hour. At the top of the article is a link to the audio – enjoy!

If the link stops working, you might be able to find the article again by searching on “joshua bell subway” – it is printed in the Washington Post.

A quote from the article by reporter Gene Weingarten:

“If we can’t take the time out of our lives to stay a moment and listen to one of the best musicians on Earth play some of the best music ever written; if the surge of modern life so overpowers us that we are deaf and blind to something like that — then what else are we missing?”
