Christopher Reuning elected to Entente International des Luthiers et Archetiers
Christopher Reuning has become only the 39th American member elected to the prestigious Entente International des Luthiers et Archetiers (EILA), also known as the International Society of Violin and Bow Makers. Violin and bow makers qualified to be EILA members demonstrate the highest level of professionalism and craftsmanship in both making and restoring.
“I’m honored to be part of this venerable organization, and I look forward to contributing to their many worthy projects,” Reuning said.
EILA was founded in 1950 by a small group of European luthiers to foster friendship and communication. Today its 170 members worldwide share their unique talents and perspectives to deepen their understanding of construction and restoration, to develop better teaching methods, and to “promote a revival in the art of violin and bow making,” according to the organization’s website, www.eila.org.
