Joshua Bell plays the subway again

Seven years ago, Joshua Bell — icongnito — played for tips at a Washington subway station.

The Washington Post staged the experiment to see if anyone would notice some of the world’s great music during their rush to work. Few — other than kids — did. The story– Pearls Before Breakfast — won a Pulitzer.

Today, Bell went back to the subway stop and he didn’t try to hide who he is because his message is too important: Music education belongs in our schools.
