Angeline's Violin for Florida Youth Orchestra

Back in August through September last year, I was one of a dozen artists chosen to paint a violin for the Florida Youth Orchestra. This worthy cause teaches children how to play musical instruments and perform in public. The poise of the violinists who performed at our opening reception night when all dozen artists received our violins was impressive. Most were younger than 13, and had incredible skill, talent, and presence on the stage while we all felt the music they played. 

Please help them meet their fundraising needs working with these eager musicial students. 

The Painted Violin Project is The Florida Youth Orchestra's major fundraiser. Each $20 donation entitles you to a complimentary raffle ticket. Donate $60 and receive three tickets plus one additional ticket. Donate $100 and you will get five tickets plus two additional tickets. (Please note that there is a $2 shipping and handling fee in addition to all donations.) 

For more information, please contact Harvey Walfish at: (954) 918-3097 or To see these violins up close, contact Harvey Walfish for the exhibit schedule. You can view the schedule sent to the artists at my site

The raffle is scheduled for May 16th, 2010.

Thanks & please help!

WOW... that is awesome. I wansn't sure when I saw you holding the violin on your website if it was painted by you or that you played. That is fantastic work and for a great cause. My wife has a Masters in Music Theory and I have a minor. Music is very dear to our hearts. Great job!!!

A-M: The violin is magnificent. It is an instrument close to my heart. My father used to play when he was a child, and I still have some old pictures. Great work!

Jason & JJ: Thank you. I LOVE music. When this opportunity presented itself, I had to apply. I am so grateful for the opportunity and had fun with it. I would do this "painted violin project" again if given the chance.

A year of thinking of different designs has helped! LOL
