**New - The Art of Luthiership & the Chatfield Instrument Restoration Project Video

The Art of Stringed Instrument Making is the world which we visit in this 6 minute video produced by Kyra Arendt.

Beginning with a short survey of instrument makers and types, Host OCO Music Director Roberta Carpenter explains how to watch for the personality and voice of instruments. Those luthiers from the greater Milwaukee/Oconomowoc area are highlighted. We then visit luthier Scott Sleider's workshop, where he relays the type of restoration work he did on the Chatfield Instruments, a matched string quartet made with wood from Lac LaBelle in Oconomowoc.

The music heard underlying the video is the 'Fanfare for Lake Country' by Crawford Gates. It is performed by the Oconomowoc Chamber Orchestra, Roberta Carpenter, Conductor.
