Stepping of the train, I could hear the whispery strains of a cello. Grand Central Terminus, always full of people and conversation was strangely mute, letting the sounds of Fauré’s Pavane op.50 waft through the halls and platforms. I immediately thought of my cellist friend and “soul sister” Channa, who I wished could be there with me.
The cellist turned out to be Erik Robert Jacobsen (FB: Erik Robert Jacobson, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg1HU4lny-0) in his tuxedo. With the Christmas market bustling around him, his music put the magic into the holiday season.
