I don’t know if this is the first time, but it is rare to find a street musician in the Grove who is collecting money for performing. At this moment, she was consulting her iPhone instead of consulting Bach on her music stand. I felt bad for this flautist who was flaunting her delicate fluting while competing with some loud rock and roll being hammered out by a DJ with large speakers. She was ignored by most of the car crowd.
Here is Mimi Stillman, who has appeared in Ocean Grove, but she got to perform in the Great Auditorium. Maybe the young musician above will get the same chance someday.
We hear Mimi perform “Doce de Coco.” The is a Brazilian melody of the “chore” genre written by Jacob de Bandolim. – Paul Goldfinger
