Follow up – Montreal Exhibition

Posted on | February 24, 2015 | No Comments|

The luthier exhibition in Montreal from December gathered together violin and bow makers from around Canada. Organized by the violin shop  Wilder & Davis, the main event was held in the room shown below, at the Chapelle historique du Bon Pasteur.

Later the room (shown above) was full of players trying instruments and chatting with all the luthiers. It was great to talk with my colleagues as well, many I hadn’t seen in years, and try their instruments.

I presented a violin and viola for the exhibition.  The viola was already owned by an Ottawa violist, Nancy Illman. She generously lent her viola  (shown below) for this event. Thank you! My violin at the exhibition was purchased by a student at the University of Montreal. She is currently the concert master of the University Orchestra and a student of Claude Richard.  The violin was a copy of a Joseph Guarneri violin from 1742, once owned by Yehudi Menuhin.
