Often referred to as the “poet of the violin,” Joshua Bell is one of the world’s most celebrated violinists. He continues to enchant audiences with his breathtaking virtuosity, tone of sheer beauty, and charismatic stage presence. His restless curiosity, passion, universal appeal, and multi-faceted musical interests have earned him the rare title of “classical music superstar.” Bell’s most recent challenge is his appointment as the new Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the first person and first American to hold this post since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

This month’s The Loop-Kernersville Fundraiser will be in Honor of Brandon Ingram – a local 10 year old has been battling Ewing’s Sarcoma since he was diagnosed on November 28, 2011. He relapsed on June 14, 2013 and is now on Hospice care in Winston-Salem.
The financial toll of cancer, the bills, and what costs are yet to come have hit hard. Our foundation Kids of Childhood Cancer has offered a “Brandon’s Warriors” Fundraiser Night at our monthly Loop Night on February 27th.
10% of all proceeds from all orders from anyone who comes will be donated to Brandon, on top of any donations to the foundation. 100% of OUR donations will help Brandon’s family as well.
