Orchestra Announces Sting Ray Violin Winner

Congratulations to River Crest 3rd grader, Maddie M., on winning an autographed Mark Wood Sting Ray Violin at the recent Orchestra Electrify Your Strings Concert. Maddie won the violin by correctly guessing the number of tuning pegs in a jar. The correct number was 116. Three other people guessed correctly and Maddie’s name was then randomly drawn from a box containing the names of all of the correct answers.

The Hudson Orchestra Program would like to thank Mark Wood and Coda Bows for their donation of the violin. This made an already spectacular concert even more special. The Hudson Orchestra Program was able to raise over $1,000 for scholarships and future guest artist experiences.
