To raise funds for our important music programs, on March 6th, 2015, the Library Society will offer a lovely “salon” experience in the intimate and acoustically-fabulous Main Reading Room. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Winifred and John Constable, owners of a vintage 1686 Stradivarius violin known as the “ex Nachez” for one of its past owners, the instrument will be here to help celebrate the Library Society’s valuable contributions to Charleston over the last 267 years. The Constables have been dedicated friends of the Charleston community, most recently lending the Stradivarius to the CSO to highlight its artistic growth. Yuriy Bekker will play and offer his perspectives on what makes a Stradivarius so special. It will be a memorable evening!
