A Dashing Performance, Below Ground

Violinist, Union Square
Photo by myself, in the Union Square subway station.

The wall by the stairs to the N and R trains is a very popular area for musicians. The lighting and acoustics are great, and there is ample room for an audience.

A violinist playing an electric violin wowed onlookers as he danced wildly to his own music, which was schmaltzy and a bit dated. The violin was lit from within with red lights and the scroll was made to resemble a dragon.

I middle daughter is starting Suzuki violin lessons on Tuesday. Her music will be a little different I guess unless he was playing "Twinkle, twinkle" and "Go tell Aunt Rhody!"
