Seven years ago at age 57, Mario D'Anna bet his friends that he could learn to play the violin. D'Anna, who abandoned the instrument as a child, won the wager. But you won't see the former big band bass player in any concert halls--his listeners are on the streets. "I almost got discouraged," said the 64-year-old Echo Park man, who plays every Thursday in Glendale along Brand Boulevard. "My fingers weren't moving right, but I stuck with it," he said. "All I did was just practice violin."
