CAS Forum presents: Oberlin Acoustics Workshop
Friday, November 12
The CAS Forum brings instrument and bow makers together with researchers in musical acoustics. Organized within the VSA and open to all members, the group explores applications of scientific principles to the construction of violin-family instruments. A special installment of the monthly First Fridays series is planned as part of the 2021 Virtual Convention. Additional (FREE) registration required. Presentations include:
2021 New Instrument Exhibit
Monday, October 18 - Registration deadline
Friday, October 22 - Delivery deadline for your instrument/bow or exhibit materials
The convention includes the return of the NIE, a showcase separate from the bi-annual VSA Competition. Exhibitors can virtually share a recent instrument or bow to inspire and learn from their peers. This year’s event will include a Maker’s Forum, a live Q & A for a limited number of makers to discuss their work with convention attendees. Keep My Instrument or Bow exhibitors will provide exhibit materials directly, while Ship My Instrument or Bow exhibitors will send their work to the NIE Coordinator to facilitate photos and video for an additional fee.
Vendors & Sponsors
Vendor registration is FREE and includes an interactive booth within the convention app to showcase your business to conference attendees.
Sponsorships are available with a range of packages for promotional advertisement before, during, and after the convention to maximize your exposure to over 900 current members.
We encourage participation as both a vendor and a sponsor.
We can't wait to see you even if we can't be together in person.
Your friends & colleagues at the VSA
