NEWARK — Students stood with their mouths wide open. Dozens of shiny black cases opened to reveal brand new violins. No dings, no scratches, no snapped strings.

On Tuesday, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation unveiled its donation of 250 instruments to Newark Public schools including about 30 new instruments to students at Camden Street School.
