Big Reward Offered for Information in Violin Heist

Jan 31, 2014

The MSO hopes a $100,000 reward helps recover the 300-year-old Stradivarius violin that was stolen Jan. 27.

Concertmaster Frank Almond was leaving a concert at Wisconsin Lutheran College when he was robbed. The valuable violin was on long-term loan to Almond, from an anonymous owner.

Anyone who can provide information that results in a safe return of the 300-year-old instrument is eligible for a $100,000 reward. Tips can be made to the Milwaukee Police Department or the MSO.
