Lewis Flores arranged “Cry Me a River” by Justin Timberlake into a beautiful, contemporary song for the violin and is among many contemporary/classical string players which also jumping to the forefront like David Garrett and Black Violins. According to Manessa, “I just want kids to know that playing string instruments can be fun and cool so I want to make them look cool too which is why I’m running a ‘Design the Violins’ contest.

The winner will receive the first violin in their design off the line and have the instrument named after them. The second and third place winners will also receive the instruments they designed, but “I reserve the right to name those instruments though,” Manessa says with a chuckle.

Crystal instruments with acrylic fittings and quality hand painted instruments, instruments made by luthiers, cases made by manufacturers in Croatia and France that are beautiful to look at, cases made to match the wonderful, colorful new instruments being produced…all designed with the idea of making the learning of a string instrument more pleasurable for everyone.
