Commuters Play Beethoven’s “Bus Station Sonata” in the UK

At the Hay­mar­ket Bus Sta­tion in New­cas­tle (UK), com­muters and passers-by were invit­ed to con­tribute a note or two to a Beethoven Sonata. Men and women, young and old, peo­ple from dif­fer­ent walks of life — they all lent a hand and shared in a cen­turies-old musi­cal tra­di­tion. Com­pared to some of the elab­o­rate flash­mob per­for­mances we’ve seen, this pre­sen­ta­tion was rather sim­ple. But, as you know, some­times less is more.

Thanks Anton for send­ing our way.
