The ''Forever Young'' theme of the 125th Anniversary Celebration of Cincinnati Music Hall produced violins honoring various key individuals and organizations connected with Music Hall as painted by area artists. Six violins went on display the weekend of April 4-6, 2003, in Music Hall and remained as part of the display until the fall 2003 season. As they were completed, other violins were added to the display. In the fall, the violins were auctioned off; the funds were used by SPMH to support projects in and around Music Hall.

The themes of the violins and the artists:
