UPDATE (Monday, Aug. 26, 2019): Today, Spencer Evans’ clarinet was located and returned to its rightful owner. The clarinet was found in some bushes nearby Evans’ home, and was returned to him. Thank you to all who shared this story and helped in keeping an eye out for the cherished instrument.
Spencer Evans’ beloved clarinet has been stolen…again.
On the morning of Sunday, August 25th, the celebrated Kingston-based musician found his vehicle had been broken into overnight just outside his home on John St. Upon a closer look, Evans realized the thief had also taken the black case containing his “irreplaceable” clarinet.
This is the second time this year that Evans’ clarinet has been stolen. The first time, in early February of this year, Evans was reunited with his clarinet a few days later after he made a public plea for its return.
Evans has owned the clarinet since 1986 and says that while it has little monetary value, it is “priceless” due to the sentimentality it carries for him.
Evans is offering $100 for its return, with no questions asked. He can be reached at 613-547-9645 to arrange for its return.
Anyone with any information regarding the clarinet, or anyone who might find it, is asked to contact Kingston Police. A report has been filed for the break-in and theft with Kingston Police, and they will be able to return the instrument to its rightful owner.
