Lost London Underground violin sparks social media campaign

A performer lost her violin 'in a daze' on the London Underground and is relying on the kindness of strangers for its safe return.

Violinist and composer Satoko Fukuda has taken to Twitter to find her lost violin, last seen on the London Underground. After setting off to a university lecture despite feeling unwell, the performer accidentally left the instrument on the tube, and is now offering a reward for its safe return.

The instrument, made in 1919, is in a grey case and was left on the southbound Metropolitan line on Monday afternoon at 5pm. Fukuda's contact details are also visible on a travel tag.

If the violin is returned by Sunday, Fukuda is planning to play in a concert at The Forge in Camden, London, performing music by Bach, Prokofiev, and Piazzolla.
