Orchestra draws inspiration from Hollywood
DeKALB – A silent auction of painted violins will be one of the highlights of Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s benefit evening, “KSO Goes to the Movies!” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 8, in Boutell Memorial Concert Hall, in the Music Building at Northern Illinois University.
The hand-painted, salvaged violins are one-of-a-kind art pieces created by local and regional artists. Nancy Long, art teacher at North Grove Elementary School in Sycamore, painted a violin in the style of Vincent van Gogh’s painting “Starry Night.”
“I decided to do the ‘Starry Night’ theme because of the curves and swirls in the design of the violin,” she said.
