The Vieuxtemps Guarneri is a violin that is older than the United States of America — 273 years old, to be exact. It recently became the most expensive violin in the world, selling for an estimated $16 million. Its new owner anonymously donated the historic instrument to violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, on loan for the rest of her life.

December 31, 2013 | There are only a few hours remaining for you to make an additional gift to WKAR for the 2013 tax year. The dollars you share today come back to you each and every day of the year as TV and radio that matter in your community.
The next days of TV specials offer you Lots to Like. You can do more than enjoy the arts through WKAR -- you can also go backstage and learn about the creative process, explore the roots of your favorite music or find out what motivates your favorite actors.
You'll find Lots to Like on WKAR TV over the next few days. Tune in for more of those unexpected discoveries. Maybe you'll notice a new singer who inspires you or experience a historical moment in time that's new to you!
On Monday, WKAR Radio is holding a one-day pledge drive to support the classical music you love. Your pledge will be dedicated to WKAR's commitment to classical music and will become part of the WKAR Classical Music Endowment.
You enjoy and depend on classical music here on WKAR. Give Now Online or call 517 353-5000 to donate to the Classical Music Endowment -- where your donation can be used only to support classical music in mid-Michigan from WKAR.
Here at WKAR Radio we are grateful to you and others like you for the pledges received this April. It’s due to member support that we can bring you the classical music you love and the news programs that keep you informed every day of the week.
"Thank you for calling WKAR - may I take your pledge?"
You can be that cheerful voice when a fan calls during a WKAR on-air fundraising drive. Volunteering to answer phones in the WKAR-TV Volunteer Center or the WKAR Radio Studios is a great way to support your community and public media for mid-Michigan.
There are only a few days remaining to make an additional gift to WKAR for the 2012 tax year. The dollars you share this week come back to you each and every day of the year as TV and radio that matter in your community.
