Sending young musicians to Austria and Hungary
This 'cause' has my support, as I know first hand what a fantastic opportunity this is, so I jumped at the chance to get involved! My multi-talented daughter was a flautist in the SR Symphony Youth Orchestra and, as a High Schooler, had the opportunity to go on tour with the orchestra and play concerts in Czechoslovakia and Berlin.
This year, as a fundraiser to send this years' top musicians to Austria and Vienna, the Santa Rosa Symphony League has organized "An Evening in Vienna" event of eating and waltzing and bidding. Among items to be auctioned off, over 25 violins have been painted by top local artists, 10 of those have been selected for the live auction, and my "Fountaingrove Round Barn" violin is one. To see the violin in person, visit Corrick's Stationery Store, 637 4th Street, in the heart of downtown Santa Rosa (maybe while you are in line for some limited edition Pliney the Younger at Russian River Brewing?)
