Occupy the T!

Mayor Menino's midnight deadline last night passed.. without eviction!

We are excited to celebrate the tenacity of Occupy Boston with the new, winter phase of the 99% String Quartet - Occupy the T!

We will be playing today, Friday, Dec 9, from 4pm-6pm in a downtown T station. Aiming for South Station (Red line, Alewife-bound platform), if we can nab the spot. Otherwise, we may be found at Park St, North Station, or Downtown Crossing!

  1. We had a great time Occupying-the-T yesterday for four hours: the 99% String Quartet played its first subway performance for the afternoon commuters at Park St. (preceded by 2 hours of solo Bach and Ysaye).

    I couldn't tell if people were more thrilled about supporting Occupy via music, or about encountering a live string quartet on their commute home, but either way, lots of good energy and delighted smiles (from listeners and players alike!). Plus we collected almost $300 (from an estimated 180 individual supporters) for Occupy Boston!
