I'll be performing at an amazing event at A Cavallo violins in Omaha, NE on March 19 and April 9th. There will be well over 100 modern violins on exhibition for the Art of Sound event, held annually at this great violin shop. There will be a night of solo playing on the 19th followed by a string quartet of modern instruments on April 9th. Excited to play so many great modern instruments, and what a great gift to local community to have so many makers represented under one roof! :)
The Art of Sound:
