I'd like to take a moment to thank the violin shops, retailers and music programs who are advertising on Violinist.com in February. Their financial support helps Laurie and I to keep the site running and filled with great new interviews and features. (Laurie's got three new violinist interviews she's working on writing into stories right now!)
So thank you to our returning advertisers:
As well as to our new and returning advertisers this month:
Looking for financial help for college and career? From The Top is selecting approximately 25 pre-collegiate violinists this year for $10,000 awards. Please check out the link to the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award for application details. We'd also like to thank violin maker Hans Pluhar and Eldar Speiser and the "Join a String Quartet" music kit for supporting the site this month.
Also, we would like to thank Shar for making a year-long commitment to supporting Violinist.com. Shar will be highlighting many different offers on Violinist.com over the next 12 months, so we hope you'll keep your eyes open for those.
We hope that you will show your appreciation for these advertisers' support of Violinist.com by considering them when you're making a decision about violin- and music-related purchases, or your violin career.
If you run a music-related business, or are an administrator at a music school, competition or camp, we invite you to consider supporting this lively community by becoming an advertiser on Violinist.com.
Thank you, again, to everyone who has helped make Violinist.com such a fun and informative community!
