March Meeting - Brian Lisus

The Art of Making a Traditional Violin

We have an exceptional program for March from the world famous violin make Brian Lisus. Brian has been making violins in South Africa for about 40 years, but just recently located to Southern California. Brian makes a traditional violin using traditional methods and materials. He compounds his own primers (stain) and varnish using materials similar to what would have been used hundreds of years ago. Besides making violins, he also give classes in instrument building. Here is Brian's website if you want to preview his work and approach to music. It's one of the classiest websites I've ever experienced.
