GIVEAWAY WINNER Congratulations to RACHEL WHITTY of Glenwood, New Jersey, the winner of a Paesold PA807 Master Violin (retail value $4,100) offered in a recent Strings magazine giveaway. The German-made Paesold violin features a body crafted from naturally air-dried flamed maple and spruce. It arrives with a certificate of authenticity signed by the master luthier who made it. Rachel plans to put her new Paesold instrument to good use. "I have been playing violin for ten years and have been a member of many orchestras, including the New Jersey All-State Orchestra, Northern New Jersey Youth Orchestra, Skylands Youth Symphony, and Heartstrings, a community-service chamber ensemble," she says. "I also perform at church events as part of my church's music ministry. In the fall, I will be attending the Hartt School of Music to study music education and performance."
