First be thankful for a fine violin to play, practice and take the time to learn how the violin speaks, it’s nuances what strings it likes for example. Most importantly I would see that it is used and past on to another whom could appreciate it as I would. I just hope that the person that wins this violin makes beautiful music on it for themselves and others … making music for others is important especially those who can’t get out to see. I would go to nursing homes and hospitals when I was off the road the people there just love live music every thing from Country to Baroque. All the best for putting this contest on and giving the hope of possibly winning.
