LINKS: A budding violinist and his instrument

Those of us who frequent Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts
have sort of grown up with Spencer Mangan, the now-12-year-old son of Orange County Register Music Critic
Timothy Mangan. Turns out that Spence is quite the young violinist, and his dad
has regaled us with his delightful story of buying his son his first full-size
violin … and quite an instrument (and story) it is. Click for the links. (NOTE: I have a comment in part II.)
