CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - An almost 330-year-old Stradivarius violin is to be played during a concert in Charleston.

The Charleston Library Society is sponsoring the Friday concert during which the violin will be played by Yuriy (YER’-ee-ah) Bekker, the concertmaster and the director of chamber orchestra for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.

Bekker is being joined by a string quartet as he plays the instrument that was crafted in 1686.

The concert is being held to commemorate the Library Society’s contributions to Charleston and the state of South Carolina over more than 250 years.
