It IS fixable, and thank God I have it insured. (seriously....I thank God again and again for this). I've had this violin for 23 years and we've been through so much together.
We graduated from college with a degree in music performance
We played in the Peoria Symphony for a year
We've taught hundreds of students in Virginia, Illinois, North Carolina, Vermont, Minnesota, Michigan and Oregon.
We graduated from East Carolina University with a masters degree in violin and Suzuki
We went on a European orchestra tour
We played in the Rochester Orchestra for a concert
We played in the Marquette Symphony Orchestra for a year
We've played weddings and funerals
She's also (easily) one of my favorite subjects to photograph...
I'm missing her greatly, but am so thankful that she's getting fixed and in a few more weeks will be as good as new. I also love the the luthier fixing her calls me every week with an update. There is a chance she will sound better than before, and I know for sure she'll look better. There were quite a few cracks that were fixed with more of a "band aid" fix, but now that the top had to be removed, they can be fixed in a more secure and lasting manner.
