                                                               These were women of vision, with a passion for music and a willingness to do whatever
                                                            was needed to help the orchestra grow and succeed. Our sincere gratitude is but one way we

                                                            in 1950. We have built upon that foundation and grown, adding new activities to our schedules.

10   the Designer Showhouse 2010
    In Jacksonville, we are fortunate that
both the City and Duval Country School
Board support the arts. Even though the
budget is tight, there is a music teacher in
every school, although some are part-time
positions. The Guild’s Mission Statement says,
in part, that The Guild will further music
education. Therefore, we supplement school
music programs.
    The Guild’s Education Committee has
several programs for schools and students. The
Instrument Zoo, available in the schools to all
fifth graders, provides children an opportunity
to learn about musical instruments by holding
and playing them. It’s wonderful to see the
expressions on children’s faces when they
make sounds with an instrument for the first,
and possibly only time.
    In addition to schools, the Zoo is available
at Family Concerts at the Times-Union
Center for the Performing Arts, where many
adults join in the fun. The Guild is proud to
have received an award from the American
Orchestra League on behalf of the Instrument
Zoo program.
    Many talented music teachers want to put
on special programs or purchase equipment
not allowed by their budgets. With this
in mind, The Guild created Harmony and
Melody grants.
    All teachers, not just music teachers, in
Northeast Florida are invited to apply for
grants up to $500, which are awarded each
year in December.
    From original musicals to drum and guitar
groups, or start-up strings programs, we
have seen some amazing results because of
these grants.
    For many years The Guild has sponsored
Performance Scholarships for members of
the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra
(JSYO). Winners are announced at the Major/
Minor Concert held each spring, when the
JSYO performs with the entire Jacksonville
Symphony Orchestra. Listening to these
talented and hardworking children gives us
hope for the future of music performance.
    This past year, one of our members, Eleanor
H. King, saw a financial need for children who
wish to play in various JSYO programs. With
this in mind, The Guild created the Eleanor H.
King Tuition Scholarship. This first year, seven
children were awarded the scholarship, which
will help them to meet their tuition costs.
The results of this scholarship will be seen for
years to come. We applaud Eleanor King for
her wisdom and foresight. Anyone wishing to
contribute to this worthy cause, please call
The Guild at (904) 358-1479.

            Tucked beneath the staircase, the powder bath is
            a jewel of a room, sparkling with crystal and silver,
            blending traditional with soft contemporary design to
            create an elegant small space. Crisp white-on-silver
            wallpaper in a bold but graceful grillwork pattern was
            used to add depth and dimension to the room. The

            metallic background of the paper is carried onto the
            ceiling, wrapping the space in a reflective envelope.
            The vanity light, with crystal pendants and a sheer oval
            shade, is an updated rendition of a traditional fixture
            and hangs over an oval modern version of a Venetian
            mirror. Unexpected accents of orange repeated
            throughout the room add punches of color and               TAMI CARTER
