Spectators packed the insides of the Thomas Metzler Violin Shop on Sunday afternoon. Three musicians played violas, violins and cellos from Cremona, Italy, to a crowd of more than 80 people in the small shop. A total of 40 violins, three cellos and eight violas were played. A traveling collection, the set of instruments are all either rare, expertly made, antique or all of the above, which made the sticker prices of some of the instruments top the six-figure range. "Violins have an enormous range of prices," said Barbara Don, wife Thomas Metzler and co-owner of the shop.

The squirrel was actually cellist Eugene Friesen wearing one of several masks as part of his one-man show for the school organized by the Music Center of Los Angeles. "This is a cello, and I am a man," Friesen told the crowd of fifth- and sixth-graders as he opened his show. But after the last song was played, it was clear the show had been more than just the sum of those two assertions.

So it is at the Glendale High School music department, which received about $20,000 in new instruments and maintenance last month from the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation. “They are amazing,” music teacher Amy Rangel said. “Without this grant we would not be able to afford to have these brand-new instruments.” The Studio City-based foundation, inspired by the 1995 film “Mr.
