Jim and Margie Fegley Orchestral String Scholarship Fund

Jim and Margie Fegley Orchestral String Scholarship Fund

This fund was established in 2013 by Marjorie Fegley in memory of her husband, James E. Fegley, who passed away in 2003. Jim and Margie Fegley opened Fegley’s Violin Shop from their home in Reading in 1979. Fegley’s Violin Shop began providing services to the local stringed instrument community but soon the business expanded to provide quality work for students and professional players throughout the country. Jim became interested in working with stringed instruments at an early age. Starting in 1962, he began apprenticing with various prominent luthiers in the United States. Jim had considered a professional music career while playing in area symphonies but his mechanical inclination and desire to work with his hands guided him to become a craftsman.
