The Violin Project
During our Open Chamber Music seminar last autumn a new instrument was crafted by luthiers Stefan-Peter Greiner and Mark Jennings, with the enthusiastic help of IMS Prussia Cove musicians. This exciting collaborative project helped the musicians to learn about their instruments from the inside out, creating an instrument inspired by the unique environment of IMS Prussia Cove.
