Wow, is this really a thing?  very cool!  will have to work my way through the posts and see where all the fiddle has been...  I just read the first couple of pages of posts and had to skip to the end to see if it was still happening.  Will watch for the next post (@JohnG)

I think it'd be cool for Thomas B to host the Traveler and play her in one of his performances (with the approval of the director of course).

A video with a zoom shot of the Traveler during the performance should be mandatory too.

Actually, I think that it is neat when any member wants to play her.

If I had better connections...  I have tickets to see the LA Philharmonic perform Carmina Burana in July and, again, if I had better connections, I would see about getting some pics of the violin section of the orchestra playing her.

Alas, I have no connections, good or bad.

 

However, I'll host her and take her to the Hollywood Bowl for a visit if she's here before then.  July 28 is the performance date.

I would suggest that anyone interested, mention it here, and PM Fiddlerman and Georganne, both. This thread has not had interest in a while. They might not see the posts. I visit this topic, but I have nothing to do with The Traveller. Once they get a couple of PM's, they will visit the topic. 😁

I wouldn't mind hosting the Traveling Fiddle (WHEN I GET BETTER - THAT MIGHT BE A WHILE DOWN THE ROAD!!!) - I love the idea and will watch to see who/where she goes next

As also documented in my blog, I received "The Traveler" this afternoon and couldn't be happier that @Fiddlerman has allowed it to come into the possession of this learning viola player. I've recorded two videos already, to commemorate the day. The first showing the unpacking and the second, my early attempts to play it with my viola sized hands. Hope everyone likes them!

Wow, @JohnG That was fantastic. You did great.

About your first video. I was so taken by the absolute love and care you showed. The Traveller is definitely in great loving hands, as it deserves. Of all the unveiling by her hosts, I think your unveiling was the most respectful and loving. I am so pleased you have her.

@JohnG -

VERY COOL!  😎 

Fun watching the unveiling - impressive playing, too! 

Can't wait to hear more of your playing & thoughts about The Traveler throughout her visit! 

Thanks for sharing this special occasion!

Thanks for the videos, fun to see the traveler in action.

I'm thinking the traveler may convert you to the lightyaaaa_gif

By the way your playing the traveler.

Have fun.

Great videos John, and it's great to see the Traveller on its journeys again.

I noticed my signature has completely worn off! That's what you get for using cheap pound shop markers lol.

@JohnG  Great videos!  Glad to see you hosting the Traveler.  Don't think you have any problem playing the violin--you might even find you prefer it to that big ol viola laugh

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
