    A three hundred year-old Stradivarius violin-- which was once stolen-- finds its way back on the stage, performing in front of a crowd at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Concertmaster Frank Almond had the chance to play his Stradivarius violin at the concert in the Broomfield auditorium, as he was welcomed with a standing ovation. The precious violin worth millions of dollars had been stolen from another concert in late January. The rare musical instrument-- made in 17-15-- had been detained at the city's police headquarters for inspection before being returned to its owner. Two Wisconsin men were charged for the theft on February 7.
