Part 3: So What?
The last question to address before this whole idea comes to life is: what do I hope will be the public’s reactions?

I love that this is a simple idea being implemented in a simple way.  Fortunately, my goals for this piece are just as simple as the idea: I want people to smile.  Easy.  Lots of people much smarter than I could come up with fancy metaphors or aesthetic objectives for a performance piece like this, but I just want people to smile.

I want people to slowly realize, after stepping onto the train and making several stops, that something out of the ordinary is happening and that it is a kind of gift from us to them.  I want people to look around at others on the train and wonder if they notice what’s going on as well – are they in on it?  Are they paying attention?  I want them to smile when the doors to the train open at every stop and they get to hear bits and pieces of one of the most beautiful compositions ever written.  I want people to get to their destinations and tell the people they are meeting that they just experienced something unique and special.  I want to give the people who ride the F-Train tomorrow night an adventure, a pretty low risk adventure, but one where they will be left wondering what’s around the next corner.

There are lots of people to thank for making this idea come to life.  The Knights, Make Music New York, MATA, David T. Little, Phil Kline, and Rose Bellini.  Thank you so much for helping me realize this project, I could not have done it without you.
