Keep your eyes open, and help a bassoonist whose instrument was stolen. Here’s the info I received:

STOLEN BASSOON ALERT: yesterday, the bassoon belonging to SF Symphony bassoonist, Steven Dibner, was stolen from his car, in his own driveway. The instrument was made by Benson Bell in Canada, and bears the serial number 34. The finish is cherry red, and it has the short bass joint with the long, seamless top joint, characteristic of all Bell bassoons.
