Joshua Bell and the “Pearls Before Breakfast”….

April 10, 2007

Something weirdly cool. Acclaimed violin virtuoso Joshua Bell, in something contrived by the Washington Post, playing incognito as a street musician at the L’Enfant Plaza metro station in Washington D.C.

A friggin’ metro station. At rush hour. With a Stradivari violin costing about $3.5 million.

In 43 minutes, unrecognized except by one person at the end, Bell made $32.17.

Full (long) story and video here.
