Stop and hear the Music ..before it is too late, busy folks ...

On Jan. 12, 2007, at 7:51 on a Friday morning, Bell, dressed in jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt, and a Washington Nationals baseball cap, opened his violin case, threw a few dollars in as seed money, and began to play. The pieces he performed were not popular, well-known ditties. They were complex, breathtaking masterpieces that have endured for centuries. Bell put his heart and soul into his music, coaxing pristine, resonant notes from his instrument. He played six pieces in 43 minutes.
During that time, 1,097 people walked by the virtuoso.
Only seven stopped to hear the music for more than a minute.
Twenty-seven tossed in some money while hurrying on.
The rest rushed by in oblivion.
