The Kid Should See This

Bus Station Sonata: Commuters play Beethoven

At the Haymarket Bus Station in Newcastle, UK, commuters were invited to play a Beethoven sonata with pianist Andy Jackson of the Cobwebs Orchestra. Most of the commuters say that they have never even touched the keys of a piano, so watching them play along is sort of a beautiful thing.

Set up by The Arts Council of England and Nexus, this installation is an important reminder that art can follow you wherever you, even inside a bus terminal.

Bus Station Sonata: Commuters play Beethoven, a wonderful video from Anton Hecht. This lovely idea should happen in every bus station.
