Between Saturday 3/28/15 night, and Monday 3/30/15 at 1pm ALL OF MY INSTRUMENTS WERE **STOLEN** FROM MY PRACTICE ROOM IN THE MUSIC BUILDING AT MILLS COLLEGE.
I have filed a report and called OPD. In the meanwhile I’m reaching out to the community for help in locating my horns.
These are of deep personal value to me, especially the alto and the clarinet; they were both my father’s. The alto is the very first woodwind instrument I ever played as a child and has been with me until now. The clarinet was set up custom for my father by his clarinet teacher Kalmen Opperman and has deep sentimental value to both of us. It would mean the world to me to get them back.
