Help Marko Replace Stolen Clarinets

On Friday, December 8th at 11 PM, my laptop computer and two valuable clarinets were stolen from a locked trunk of a locked car.

The loss of my clarinets has been devastating to me.  These clarinets are necessary for my studies, my professional work, and my income.  They are also a critical part of my composing process. 

Having recently arrived in Canada, my income is limited due to being enrolled in full-time studies at the Vancouver Academy of Music.

This theft hits particularly hard due to it being close to Christmas time and resulting in lost opportunities to perform at holiday concerts.  

My income as a musician depends on having reliable instruments.  My progress as a student depends on having reliable instruments upon which I can practice.  It is a matter of urgency that these are replaced.

The police and all surrounding music stores have received full reports about this theft.  There have so far been very few leads and I am doubtful that the instruments will be recovered.

I thank you, my friends, in advance for your generosity in helping me get back on my feet again!
