You might remember our Online Music Camp Directory earlier this year, which was a great success for many participating camps. Following that, we wanted to shine the light on our Business Directory supporters, and to urge our readers to support the businesses that support But I wanted to give the community a heads-up before we did, so that shops, retailers and others who provide services to the violin community would have the chance to join the directory before it goes up on the front page and is featured in our email newsletter, in a new ad on the side of our pages, and in our social media accounts.

If your business would like to be listed in our Directory and featured in that front-page post November 9, please apply for the directory clicking here. The cost is just $500 for a 12-month listing, including the front-page exposure and a text link in our sponsor's column, which appears on all editorial pages on Listings will go up as soon as we receive payment, and in order of level financial support to, then first-come, first served after that.

We thank all the businesses who support the community and want to continue to support them in return. To learn more about
