Violin Auction to Benefit Music Program at Canterbury School
Canterbury School ordered violins for their Suzuki Program but the violins were too large for the elementary school children. Florida Craftsmen asked local artists to embellish the violins which will be auctioned off during the “Fine Tuned” exhibition. Proceeds will benefit the school’s music program and you can own a beautiful piece of art.
