On Greatness: Joshua Bell’s Street Performing Experiment

My friend, Cindy, forwarded me a link to the best article I’ve read in a very, very long time. It’s written by Washington Post staff writer, Gene Weingarten, and it’s entitled, “Pearls before breakfast.”    (M78)

The essence of the article is this. Take Joshua Bell, one of the finest classical violinists in the world. Plant him on a D.C. street corner during rush hour. See if anyone notices.    (M79)

Read the whole article. It’s long, but it’s totally worth it. It’s well-written, entertaining, and profound on many levels.    (M7A)
