TITLE: "Girl with Violin"
ARTIST: Hua Chen
WHY WE CHOSE IT: Have you heard? Music aficionados may be interested to learn that December 13 is Violin Day. While the origin of Violin Day is unknown, we speculate that it may have something to do with enjoying the soothing sounds of this popular instrument during the winter holiday season. Hit it, maestro!
