Awesome Annex Busker(s), pt. 3 - Sunday, August 14
Theyyyyy’re back! Well, he’s back - the violinist, I mean. My favourite busker in Toronto! Making beautiful music in his usual spot at the corner of Walmer & Bloor, I stopped to record him after grabbing my groceries on Sunday evening.
He was playing Bach Cello Sonata, Partita no. 3. He started playing something else (equally lovely) but then stopped for a bit to “hide his fortune” under the cloth in his violin case! Haha, sneaky busker.
In short, I love him. He’s my absolute favourite busker - and so talented too! He’s got a whole catalogue of amazing music memorized (as many violinists do), and has become a wonderful summer staple for the Annex.

PPS: I’d like you guys to start thinking about some ubiquitous city sounds - buskers, maybe? Or transit sounds, or maybe sirens? Things that can be found in most cities. And then maybe think about recording them? Because maybe I have a fun giveaway planned… Stay tuned!
