Violinist plays for taxi driver
It’s not often Newark gets mentioned by the BBC.🙂
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.
Mohamed Khalil, who was born in Egypt, was given a reward of $100 (£50) by Mr Quint, and was also presented with a medal from the City of Newark.
A slideshow of part of the performance is available courtesy of Jersey TV: Taxicab Solo.
