Portland, January 27th, 2013. The Portland Youth Philharmonic invited eighteen artists from the West Coast, as well as three PYP musicians, to transform violins into works of art. The violins were unveiled before a performance of PYP’s Camerata Chamber Orchestra at the Wieden+Kennedy Building. Painted Violins will be on display for public viewing around the Portland metropolitan area. A list of the exhibitions are below. The violins will be auctioned at the PYP Painted Violin Gala on Friday, April 19, 2013.

(formerly known as The Chamber Orchestra of the Portland Youth Philharmonic). Camerata PYP performances take place in the more intimate setting of the Wieden+Kennedy building in the Pearl District and feature an engaging mixture of traditional and modern programming.
