More Bach in the Subways New York City

I looked everywhere and couldn’t find the video of our Bach flash mob at the West 4th Street Station. It was supposed to be released yesterday. Thankfully, a fellow participant sent me this link to a video that was made by someone who was there. Maybe the video they thought they’d release just didn’t come out so well. It was a wonderful thing to do in any case, thank you Dale Henderson and Harold Rosenbaum.

I’ve been passing by this store, Kaas Glassworks, for thirteen years (117 Perry Street). They make such beautiful pieces and you can see from this picture of their window how charming this place is. I’d love to have a storefront shop to decorate. I have nothing to sell. Oh, well, my books. Ha. My cats would love to sit in the window, I’ll bet. I’d put a sign over them saying, “The cutest cats in the whole wide world. Sorry. But it’s true. Don’t hate them for their fabulousness.”

  1. That was really nice, that short video. I’m like the woman who wiped away tears – stuff like that makes me all emotional.

    And now, back to Hegel! 🙂

  2. Hi, again, Stacy.
    Harold wrote this weekend that the videographers were having difficulty editing the footage to their satisfaction, and so the full video wouldn’t be released until Monday or Tuesday. It’s Wednesday, and it’s still not out.

    They did release this 30-second teaser in the interim, although I actually think the DNAInfo video (with the tear-wiping woman) was better:

    When the full video is available, it will be posted on the Bach in the Subways Facebook page.

    One issue they may be having with the edit, evident on the teaser, is that because of the centrally placed mike, the altos and tenors are overbalanced. Without multiple mikes, the recording might have been better if we’d sung mixed, per your earlier thought.
