year, the Delaware County Symphony features the work of a local
artist on the cover of our annual brochure. For the 2015-2016
concert season, we have selected Dualing Violins
by Sharon Ritz.
This art was created in 2007 for the New Haven Symphony Orchestra's
"The Art Violin Project". It was auctioned to benefit the Symphony.
The mosaic represents the dual personality of a violin - both
classic and playful. It includes actual components from an
instrument: a bridge, pegs, and tailpiece. .
Sharon Ritz has played the string bass in community orchestra for 35
years. She fell in love with glass mosaic art as another way to
express herself. She lives in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
Her works have been shown in many regional venues including the Old
City Jewish Art Center (Philadelphia), Markeim Art Center
(Haddonfield), and the Art Gallery in the Philadelphia City Hall.
She is a member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists, and a
board member of the Mosaic Society of Philadelphia. You can learn more about
