…several found there Wednesday said it would be “cool” to have classical music sounding over Half Block.

“If they want to deter people from coming here, they should pipe in the Sequim radio station,” said Jackie Cary, a Sequim High School senior who has come to visit friends at Half Block for five years.

She was one of the young people who voiced approval for classical music at the site that each school day draws between 20 and 30 youths.

“It gets pretty quiet around here, and the old people might like it and hang around here, too,” said Cary, adding that her mother was among the previous generation to hang out at Half Block on West Cedar.

Wow … I had no idea it had struck “at least one member of every major American metropolitan orchestra”. I’m curious who else has been hit by this.
