Every musician's nightmare...

There are so many things that annoy us when we perform. People coughing, crying children, those who think it's ok opening sweet wrappers during the 2nd movement of a Beethoven sonata... but nothing, can be worse than a phone going off. We learn to keep going even with these many disturbances, but one man decided to do something about it. Stop. And rightfully so in this instance. Watch this video and see how it happens.

At a concert in Gothenburg Concert Hall, Oct 23, 2013, Christian Zacharias stops playing in the middle of Haydn's Piano Concerto.

New Yorkers got the chance to conduct an orchestra on a street corner, see what happens.

I think it's a great way to get people interested in classical music. Maybe we should do this more often!
