Know Your Bow Campaign

Wednesday, March 29,
5:00 pm
to 6:00 pm EDT
In person at UVMC OR tune in online

Join UVMC and Kathy Reilly of Vermont Violins for a presentation and Q&A about an important topic for string musicians.

Did you know that the US is the largest consumer of pernambuco bows made with illegal wood? At the CITES convention in November 2022, officials yelled at the League of American Orchestras representative, accusing the musical community of ignoring international laws to protect endangered species. We love our bows. Buying a Pernambuco bow has become a Rite of Passage for many string instrument players. If we want Pernambuco to be part of our music tradition in the future, we have to change now – and we have 3 years to do it.
