The Art of Sound at A Cavallo Violins

February 8, 2011 at 12:30 AM

 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:

An Exhibition of Today’s Master Violin and Viola Makers


The Art of Sound 2011 will be a rare opportunity to see and hear over 150 fine violins and violas made by some of the best living makers in the world.  A. Cavallo Violins, LLC will have instruments from across the United States, Canada, Italy, Germany, England, China, Poland, Romania, and Bulgaria on display during the show.  There is no other event like this in the US!
