What If That Street Performer Was Actually A World-Class Musician?

As an experiment, the Washington Post setup a world-class vionlist to act as a street performer. He played some of the violin's most difficult arrangements perfectly, but did anybody care any more? Sadly, no (the story has a telling video). Be sure to read the full back story as well.

Update on 4/12: Michelle points us to an interesting take from a NYC subway musician, and why Joshua Bell didn't get much money. Good points.
