Detroit Youth Volume Violin Art Auction performance

Detroit Youth Volume raises money for our scholarship fund by auctioning off beyond-repair instruments that have been made into home decor by local artists! The students performed Suzuki songs amidst the violin art as part of the event. We raised $3,500 by auctioning off 21 pieces of art! Photo by Barbara Barefield.
