Linked Article: Violinist plays for taxi driver (BBC)

Just have to post this one for Holly (Jake’s violin teacher, and our good friend).

A violinist who left his 285-year-old instrument in the back of a New York cab has played a concert to thank the driver who returned it to him.
Philippe Quint gave a private 30-minute performance on Tuesday in the taxi waiting area at Newark Liberty International Airport.
He left his violin, a 1723 Kiesewetter Stradivarius, in a taxi on the way back from the airport last month.
The driver, Mohamed Khalil, got in touch the next day to return it.
“I cannot describe it in words, the feeling that I was going through at the time. I was frantically looking for the violin that whole morning,” Mr Quint said.
