NOW: MSO concertmaster Frank Almond to conclude tenure at end of 2019-20 season

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra announced Friday that Frank Almond will conclude his tenure as concertmaster at the end of the 2019-20 season.

That name may not sound familiar, but Frank Almond was the victim in one of the most high-profile crimes in Milwaukee history.

"No crime since the Jeffrey Dahmer murders in the early 90's in the city of Milwaukee has been this high-profile on a national and international level," said MPD Captain Jeff Point.

In 2014, Almond was tased outside Wisconsin Lutheran College after a performance there. Three thieves made off with his 300-year-old Stradivarius violin, worth $5 million. 

The case received national attention. 

The criminals were caught days later, and the violin was not damaged.
