A Philadelphia couple has donated the use of their family’s Stradivarius violin to the Charleston Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Yuriy Bekker for the Feb. 11 Masterworks concert. The incredibly rare instrument was made in 1686.
Owner John Constable doesn’t lend out the violin often, but he explains, “We were particularly inspired by what Yuriy and the CSO have accomplished and what they are achieving in the community. In order to generate excitement and showcase the quality of this orchestra, we wanted to do something really special to help.”
