Blaise Kielar, of the Electric Violin Shop, sends us this report from the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) conference:
The winner of the NS Design – Electric Violin Shop Giveaway of an NS Design WAV violin is CiCi Lau of Shreveport, Louisiana. The drawing was held March 21 at the EVS exhibit at the American String Teachers Association annual Conference in Atlanta, and was open only to conference attendees. The glossy black WAV was autographed by Ned Steinberger, the designer of the innovative NS Design electric violin, viola, cello and upright bass.
It is a striking coincidence that the two other WAV violins sold to young players at ASTA Atlanta were also from Shreveport! Considering there were over 700 Giveaway entries, ranging from Alaska to New Hampshire, Kenya to Germany, there must be some electric violin magic happening, or about to happen, in Shreveport!
CiCi is a high school student who has studied violin with Elaine Webb since 4th grade. After receiving the WAV violin, she said, “Thanks again for the wonderful violin. I will continue to enjoy it and amaze my friends.”
