Hope to see you there!  Since there were too many violas for the size of the orchestra this year, Joel was asked to switch to violin to bolster their numbers.  Should be a fun concert.

Red Door String Studio is working on making a logo for shirts and publicity materials.  So, if you are somewhat artistic or have an eye for graphic design, feel free to send us your ideas!  We were hoping for an image that includes a door (no suprise there) and something that evokes a violin shape.  We would like to eventually get this image digitized.  Thanks for your help!
