Rhiannon Nachbaur & the Shuswap Violin Society

Rhiannon bestows a fine violin which was donated to the SVS to 12-year old violinist Katerina for a special two-year loan.

"It is a tough struggle for a young person to operate a viable business on their own in these competitive times, but Rhiannon also finds the time and interest to give back to the community."

- Lorne Reimer, Arm Communications


 

“Music education is an integral component of a young person’s development.  The work that the Shuswap Violin Society does is so important in nurturing the next generation of fiddle players in Canada.  Keep up the great work!”

 - Pinchas Zukerman, Conductor National Arts Orchestra of Canada

Fiddleheads' Rhiannon Nachbaur and other local violinists created a legacy for violinists and fiddlers of the Shuswap. The society operated during a 5-year-term from 2003 to 2007.

In 2001 Rhiannon saw a desperate need for violin and fiddle workshops in her lacking rural community. Typical to Rhiannon's hard-working manner, the concept for a single afternoon workshop grew to become the "Strings Alive Festival for Violinists and Fiddlers." Strings Alive featured two entire days of various workshops, fiddle contests, evening concerts and jam sessions and was hosted annually.

Rhiannon soon found that the tasks of organizer, emcee, teacher and nursing mom too much to handle on top of adjudicating and performing the entire day!

In the summer of 2003 Rhiannon sought assistance to continue hosting her Strings Alive. Yet again, this simple concept took on a life of its own and her tiny workshop committee developed into a motivated non-profit group. Thus was the beginning of the Shuswap Violin Society (SVS).

The group supported violinists and fiddlers in their local community by means of scholarships ($4000 in 3 years), instrument banks, live music events, educational workshops with master musicians, a music teacher registry and a great website.

Rhiannon served the entire time Founding President with an outstanding and dedicated group of directors and members. As the fifth year concluded the directors thought the society had accomplished exactly what it sent out to do in supporting local violin music and elevating it to a whole new level. It was agreed that other local groups take over where the SVS left off and remaining funds and instruments were donated to other local arts and music groups, where the SVS legacy lives on.

 

More on the SVS

The Shuswap Violin Society (SVS) was a non-profit society incorporated under the "Societies Act" of the Province of British Columbia, Canada, Reg # S-46521.

The SVS' purposes were to promote violin and fiddle music in the Shuswap and

  • To provide assistance and opportunities to violinists and fiddlers of all ages through scholarships, instrument loans and career development programs and other related projects as determined by the membership.

  • To foster unity and community spirit and encourage musical diversity and versatility by means of educational workshops, public concerts and similar events as determined by the membership.

  • To establish new and support existing music ensembles and bands with a focus on violin and fiddle.
