National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada -Violin

Posted on | September 15, 2014 | No Comments|

This summer violinist Donnie Deacon purchased a violin I finished in 2012. Donnie Deacon has been principle of second violins with the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada since 2001. As he played this violin for the first time, it was almost instantly a good fit for him. The violin was based on Yehudi Menuhin’s Joseph Guarneri violin from 1742, which I had the chance to see and study in Seattle a few years ago.

Above is a link to the NACO website with Donnie’s biography. I would only        add that I’ve seen him help and inspire several young players in Ottawa. As well as working at the NACO, he has performed with a range colleagues, both young and older professionals.  Currently he is also music director and conductor of the Ottawa Chamber Orchestra.
