Violin. No Strings Attached.

Music has always been an important part of my life. From an early age, I was singing in the school and church choirs. Later, I took piano and singing lessons. Today my love of music is expressed through my support of the performing arts.

Friend and art partner, Janette Grassi and I have participated in four art benefits for the South Carolina Philharmonic and most recently expanded that support to include the Chapin Symphonic Society. Invited by board member, Marguerite Haines, she shared that the Society "helps provide music, performance opportunities, equipment and support to the strings departments of Chapin High School and Chapin Middle School in Chapin, SC."

So, when given our violin, we decided to wrap it in a "new string"…natural jute.

No strings attached, or at least, not enough.

Now it's time to wrap the front side.

Thanks to Kent Porth for photographing our violin. No Strings Attached.
