I don't mean to be a pain, but the violinist was Joshua Bell and the city was Washington DC.  You may be able to find the video on Youtube.  And you're right, the experiment took place during morning rush hour and Bell had his violin case open on the floor in front of him.  A few people recognized him, a few didn't but stopped to listen and put tips in the case.


Context counts.

I absolutely love this! They did something similar about 20 years ago in, I think NY Grand Central Station with another famous violinist. The person who figured it our was a HUGE fan and had a emotional meltdown!!!

I wouldn't mind seeing more of this!!! Joshua was a great sport for doing this.
