Toronto, Koerner Hall, January 14th, 2017. I just wanted to extend my big thanks to Emanuel Euvrard for the amazing and very professional job he is doing in promoting violin and bow making in Canada and the world. This is an unprecedented endeavor in Canada that helps us all in many ways--not only by providing more visibility to our work but also by raising consciousness about this profession.

As always, I particularly enjoyed and learnt from the encounters and discussions with my fellow colleagues, makers and musicians alike. So wonderful to catch up with all!

I am very much looking forward to the next Forum in Markham on January 29th.
