Present at this year’s Open Forum
November 11, 2017 – 2pm

Rene Morel and Jacques Francais may be gone, but their protégés are busy training a new generation of restorers and keeping their legacies alive. Join us for the Restoration Forum where members of the Society will demonstrate restoration techniques and tools they have found useful as they work to carry on a tradition of excellence in keeping instruments in attractive, first-rate playing condition.

Forums at past conventions have received very positive reviews and have proven to be a great way to make new friends and build your network. If you are interested in helping to make this the best Forum yet by showcasing restoration methods, tools, and/or jigs you use, please contact Pablo Alfaro at or Julian Cossmann Cooke at by October 20. 

In your message, please provide a brief bio to be printed in the program, your topic and specify any logistical needs. (e.g. amount of table space, number of electrical outlets.)
