It's time for a link roundup! Herein: the week's biggest music news, a little marching band slapstick, and a really darn good Mozart cosplay.

On this week's link roundup, catch up with two prodigious violinists, the Melodica Men, and a grocery store employee in Watertown who has some exciting news to share.

Yeah, you heard me: Three. Flutes. At once. Also, a violist who says Wagner gave him hearing damage, and a "Coraline" opera! 

Invention is the name of the game in this week's link roundup. Instruments made from turntables, Lego, and tsunami debris - plus a touch of the macabre. Onward!

A viola disaster, music for dogs, and more in this week's link roundup. Let's go!
