In the 45 minutes while the violinist played, only 6 people stopped. About 20 people gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing, silence took over and no one noticed that the music had stopped. There was no applause or recognition.
One possible conclusion from 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 some of the best music every written, what else are we missing?
