The Guardians of the Violins


"W i t h o u t   m u s i c   l i f e   w o u l d   b e   a n   e r r o r."

Nietzsche


Don't expect to be invited to a dinner party at Harriet & Karl Schreiner's
   home anytime soon. Why? Because their lovely dining room table and every
other surface in this airy room is filled with magnificent, one-of-a-kind violins -
all created by 53  highly-collectible New Mexico and
 International artists for the Santa Fe Symphony's

This delightful and diligent couple share a love for both music and art, and this combined passion made them the perfect pick for Co-Chairs of this unique Symphony fundraiser.



No dinner parties here...



Each artist was given a violin to transform into a work of art, and every artist, note the Schreiners,  graciously embraced the project both for its creative possibilities and the incentive to raise money for the Symphony's talented musicians and community engagement projects.

"All the Symphony musicians are residents of New Mexico," says Karl Schreiner," and eighty-percent of the money raised through this Gala supports these talented musicians and in turn the musical excellence of the Symphony." The remaining twenty-percent, according to Karl, goes to fund children's programming - mentoring, musical instruments and children's concerts - as well concerts for retirement and nursing homes.

I was invited to photograph the violins for CHASING and it was a remarkable experience, like stepping into a rare and precious museum.

The violins reflect the unique spirit of each artist and are carved, painted and fashioned from beads, silver, feathers and even cast from glass.
 There is a wonderful story 'woven' into each one.
