These are not just staff personnel, but experienced professional musicians in their own right. Many staff members majored in music and currently perform with various symphonies and musical groups. The luthiers not only repair instruments, but also design and create instruments, such as the new Electric Violin created by Lyle Knudson and bows by Jeff Anderson. Click on photos for staff bios.
