The 2009 New Violin Family Orchestra (NVFO), formerly known as the Summer String Orchestra, plays the Finale of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's beloved "Serenade for Strings," opus 48. This 15-piece ensemble forms each summer in Central New York for about eight rehearsals and presents a benefit concert for a worthy charity. All the musicians, conductors, and arrangers are volunteers. Seven of the eight instruments of the New Violin Family are used in sections. Only the piccolo violin is absent. The NVFO is presently the only orchestra of its type in the world.
