Saying thanks for finding his violin

Virtuoso violinist Philippe Quint will be saying thanks today -- with his irreplaceable violin.

He'll be playing for about a half hour at a taxi waiting area at Liberty Airport, in Newark, New Jersey.

Last month, Quint left his 285-year-old Stradivari violin in Mohamed Khalil's cab.

After some frantic calls from Quint, officials put out the word about the missing four million dollar instrument and Khalil found it.

Khalil and his family will also get to see Quint in more formal surroundings.

They have tickets to Quint's next performance in September at New York's Carnegie Hall.
