Violin Art Auction to benefit Detroit Youth Volume

@ Holding House, 3546 Michigan Avenue Detroit, MI 48216
Twenty five beyond-repair violins, cellos and antique cases have been reconstructed by select Detroit woodworkers, painters, stencilers, fiber & collage artists. Art pieces will be auctioned off by comedian Bil Benden to benefit Detroit Youth Volume in providing scholarships for violin lessons to low-income families in Detroit. Take home a piece of violin art or choose one to give as a unique holiday gift! Enjoy the wine, cider and donuts bar and hear students ages 3-14 perform. Detroit Youth Volume is a 7-year-old Suzuki & contemporary violin program teaching 40 students within the Detroit Symphony building.
