As the afternoon sun poured through the living room window of his grand apartment overlooking Central Park, Sting was calmly reflecting on his trying reunion with the Police, and anticipating, with genuine excitement, his current tour with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, performing imaginative new versions of his solo and Police hits.

A Stradivari owned by the first woman to play in the strings section of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has sold for $1.2 million. Christie's auction house said Friday that the 1700s violin, known as the Penny, was purchased for $1,273,000 by a buyer who did not wish to be identified. The violin's owner, Barbara Penny, died last year. A 1729 Stradivari violin, known as the Hammer, sold at Christie's in 2006 for $3.5 million, which the auctioneer called a record for any musical instrument.

In their visit to the Southland, members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra held special workshops for elite high school musicians and elementary school students at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. "We don't tend to do traditional children's concerts," said Judith Webster, head of education for the London-based orchestra. "We introduce the instruments and let the children become familiar with the people behind the penguin suits."
