STAGE TUBE: Homeless Violinist Receives New Violin from Montreal Orchestra

Montreal violinist and homeless man Mark Landry has been playing since he was 17 years old in Metro stations around the city. However, on Tuesday evening, his violin had been stolen.

Landry made a sign telling his fans that his violin had been stolen in hopes of raising enough money to buy a new one.

The staff at the Orchestre Métropolitain saw the sign, went to the orchestra's CEO Jean R. Dupré, and decided to help Landry by reaching out to a local violin shop, Maison du Violon, who then offered him a new one at cost.

Dupré, along with the CBC news crew, delivered the violin to Landry. Watch the video below of Landry receiving his new violin!
