An Odd Experiment in Culture

World-renowned violinist (and IU alumnus and professor) Joshua Bell agreed to a Washington Post stunt to offer a 40 minute solo concert in a DC-area subway station, to see if any of the DC commuters noticed the greatness around them. The Post did a long and thoughtful write-up, after filming the whole thing, and they even posted video online. You can see the article + video for yourself (you may need to register to access the site, but it is free–and totally worth it). Awesome.

Props to DC-area resident and Sister of Moi, Kathy Thomas, for sending me this!
