Acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell performs with young musicians who are alumni of the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) during a performance, Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, at Union Station in Washington. Seven years ago, Bell performed incognito for tips in a Washington subway station, but almost no one stopped to listen. The subway performance was an experiment with The Washington Post to see if anyone would notice some of the world's great music during their rush to work. It made for a good story that eventually won the Pulitzer Prize and inspired a children's book and even mentions in church sermons.  (AP Photo/Molly Riley)
