“We have inspired a lot of kids, who now find it cool to pick up a violin along with their basketball and play to their hearts content,” said Damien Escobar. “I was called a ‘sissy’ and every other name in school when I began playing the violin at age 8. My brother brought it home from school and I was hooked on the instrument.”
