“We couldn’t play at Artscape this year so we wanted to find a unique place to do it, ” said Michael Lisicky with the BSO. “We thought it would be nice and cool in the subway, but obviously it’s summertime but that doesn’t mean the music stops in the summer.”
The MTA installed a piano earlier this year.
Other shows are set for Wednesday and Friday at 4:15 p.m.
