friends of the bvma 

join the friends of the bvma today

Over the years we have met many people in with a deep interest in the violin, who would benefit from being a member of the BVMA, but who have been put off by the focus on professional making and restoration. As part of our 25th Anniversary Campaign, we developed a new kind of membership as Friends of the BVMA both to extend our hand to our many supporters, and to give a new focus to our remit of communicating the craft of violin making to a wider audience.

The benefits of membership as a friend of the BVMA are exactly the same as being a regular member, with the same newsletter and invitation to our events, but you will be invited to a number of special events put on through the year that have more of a focus for general interest and less professional audiences. Whether you are a musician, an amateur maker, or simply someone who would like to support the magical craft of violin making, we’d like to extend you the warmest welcome.
