A scary experience in a foreign country last week has brought the Baker family closer together.
Jenny Oaks Baker, a prominent Latter-day Saint violinist, and her family were traveling in Pisa, Italy, last week when their vehicle was broken into and several items, including luggage, computers and one cello, were stolen. To their great relief, their phones and two violins, belonging to Baker and a daughter, were not taken.
Baker, the daughter of Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve, posted what happened on Facebook.
The family was visiting Europe to create music videos and perform in Vienna, according to LDSDaily.com.
The Bakers spent the following day at the U.S. Consulate obtaining new passports and items to last them the rest of the trip. They hoped to replace the stolen cello and were grateful to still have the two violins.
Two days later, Baker posted photos of the family in Florence. She said they were recovering from their frightening episode.
Baker's most recent post came Sunday as she described one of her most memorable performances in the aftermath of the burglary.
