In January 2007, Joshua Bell performed in a Washington, D.C. Metro station where over 1,000 people passed him with only a few stopping to listen. Already a widely popular performer, Bell became even more well known after this social experiment. He will play in public transit once again at Washington, D.C.'s Union Station today at 12:30p to help promote music education and will be joined by nine Young Arts Foundation students he mentored. Bell's Sony Classical album - Bach, featuring his ensemble the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, is also being released today.
