    Cute. I wasn't expecting Itzhak Perlman or even Jenny Oaks Baker, but still I wish Mr. Denney was a better violinist; it would have made for a better story. Endearing as this video is, his bow changes are scratchy, intonation is "pitchy" and he has more of a nervous shake than a vibrato. Never too late to improve, though! Maybe during the off season.
