In-Person Event: Peter Prier and Sons Violin Tour


Peter Prier & Sons Violins houses a string instrument retail and repair shop. It is currently run by Mr. Prier's son, Paul Prier. Peter Prier (1942-2015) came to the United States from Germany in 1960, and opened the Violin Making School of America in 1972. Artists using his instruments include Yehudi Menuhin, Joseph Silverstein, and Daniel Heifetz. The Violin Making School of America, now owned by VMSA graduate Charles Woolf, is located next door to Peter Prier & Sons Violins. Come enjoy a tour of the shop and school, meet the craftsmen, and observe how violins are made. Must be able to climb steep stairs in an old building; lots of walking and standing.
