CHS Orchestra to Auction Off Violins for Paris Fundraiser
Some Charlottesville students are holding a unique fundraiser for a trip overseas. It's part of Charlottesville High School Orchestra's annual auction. The students are hoping to raise thousands of dollars for a trip to Paris.
They're auctioning off 17 violins crafted by artists, graphic designers, an architect, and even a CHS student. Each violin is completely one-of-a-kind. Many of them are hand painted, while one is covered in leather, and another one was made into a lamp.
"It's all about the music and these kids are incredible, the opportunity that they have to play and perform and work as a team and travel together, and some of these kids have never traveled before," said Ginny Wardell, a parent volunteer for CHS orchestra.
Wardell says the orchestra hopes to raise $10,000 in the auction, which takes place February 1 through February 8.
