Pro Arte Quartet Members Detained for Ivory

Violist Sally Chisholm and cellist Parry Karp of the Pro Arte Quartet, both of whose bows have ivory tips, were detained in the Brussels airport for several hours, despite the fact that they were carrying instrument passports. But customs officials claimed they were not legitimate documents and wouldn’t allow them into the country.

It took a call from the American Embassy to Belgian politicos to straighten things out.
