The Cremona Consortium is Here!

The Potter Violin Company, in partnership with the Washington Conservatory, is proud to announce an exclusive East Coast showing of violins, violas, and cellos from the Cremona Consortium.

From now through September 13, 2015, dozens of the finest modern Italian violins, violas and cellos, made by luthiers of the Cremona Consortium, will be on display at our Bethesda Shop.  Please visit our Cremona Consortium page for more details on this show and the showcase recital and reception on September 13th.

Showing by Appointment Only

Because of the high demand, we are showing these instruments by appointment only. If you wish to examine these exceptional instruments, please call our store or email to schedule your appointment. We will do our best to accommodate you.

When string players achieve the level of artistry that demands the very best instruments and bows, we are here to offer the finest instruments by renowned modern makers as well as rare and antique American, French, English and Italian Instruments.

Matching a highly-skilled musician to the right instrument or bow is an art form. Our experienced fine instrument consultants work closely with each client in order to find the instrument and/or bow to best fit their specific needs and playing styles.
