Painted Violin Silent Auction - June 11, 12 & 13

Help the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra raise the remaining $90,000 to fund their June 2022 tour of Spain! We invite you to a silent auction in the Weill Hall lobby during each of the performances of Visions of Hope on June 11, 12 and 13.

Local artists have generously volunteered their time and creativity to turn donated violins (and a cello or two) into works of art. Each performance will have a different collection as noted below.

Bidders must be present, and prepared to pay for and take possession of the art piece at the end of the performance.

How it works:

  • Write your name and bid amount on the bid sheets.
  • Bidding closes 15 minutes after the end of the concert.
  • Winners will be announced immediately after bidding closes.
  • If yours in the winning bid, make your donation at the service desk.
  • Your "purchase" amount is a fully tax-deductible donation.
  • Winning bidders will take possession of the art immediately.
  • Please note that the display stand is not included.

If you have any questions, or are unable to attend, and would like to make a donation toward the SRS Youth Orchestra tour to Spain, please contact Donor Liaison and Executive Assistant Enid Rickley-Myres at (707) 546-7097 x223.

The Symphony is very grateful to all of the artists represented here.
