On a cold morning a man at a metro station in Washington DC stopped and began to play the violin
Play selected selections from the finest musical pieces of the genius Bach for about 45 minutes …

During that time “because it was a rush hour”, about 1100 people passed through the metro station, mostly on their way to work …

 

Three minutes passed,

A middle-aged man slowed down and stopped for a few seconds, listening to the music piece, then rushed to catch up.

A minute later, the violinist received the first dollar!
A woman threw him money without stopping and continued the march!

Someone leaned on the wall to listen to it for a few minutes, then looked at his watch and started walking again and it was clear that he had been late …

He was the most interested in a 3-year-old boy whose mother urged him to walk but stopped to look at the violinist …

Finally, the child continued to walk, head manager all the time, and repeated this many other children ..

 

 

All parents, without exception, forced their children to continue walking and all the children without exception tried to stop and listen …

In 45 minutes of playing the music, he did not stop and listen for a while only 6 people …
Of those who passed around 20 gave him money, and then proceeded at a natural pace …

The end of 45 minutes of playing was $ 32 …
When he finished playing and ran silent, no one noticed!
No one applauded!

No one has noticed that this violinist is “Josho Bell” and one of the greatest and most talented musicians in the world.

And that he played a group of the most complex musicals.
And he plays a $ 3.5 million violin.

Two days before the moment he was on the subway, the ticket to his concert at a theater in Boston was sold for an average of $ 100.

“Josho Bell” played in the metro station as part of an experiment organized by the Washington Post as a social study on cognition and human priorities …

The basic idea was:

– Do we recognize beauty in an inappropriate atmosphere and at an inappropriate time?
– Do we stop to appreciate him?
– Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions of this experiment could be:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music written for the violin!

How many things around us during the course of life we ​​miss and we did not enjoy it?
And sometimes we are tempted by the atmosphere of appearances to appreciate what beautiful people see to us similarly …
