Violin/Cello Making Competition – USA

Posted on | November 20, 2016 | No Comments|

Every two years, the Violin Society of America holds an international violin making competition. 205 Violins, 109 violas, 67 cellos, 9 basses and 68 bows were entered from around the world to compete in Cleveland, Ohio in November.

On Thursday evening, I was awarded silver medal for workmanship for my latest cello.  It was a Stradivari model cello that I have developed over many years. It was pleasing to win a medal for this cello. In the past I have won medals for my violin and viola making in competitions in Europe. And now my cello making has won an award from the highest international competition in the Untied States.
