I have been making instruments for over 38 years. During that time, soloists, recording artists, symphonic and chamber musicians, as well as pedagogues and collectors have acquired my instruments. The following is a sampling.

Victor Ambroa, Professor of Violin Majadahonda Professional Conservatory of Music; Conductor Chamber Orchestra Andres' Segovia; Faculty Real Conservatorio Superior de Musica de Madrid; former member European Union Youth Orchestra

Boorse Collection, All violins in the collection are by living makers. The makers are initially chosen by three main criteria: medals won at Violin Society of America competitions; advice by makers already in the collection; and opinions posted at www.violinist.com. Ultimately, instruments are accepted or rejected by the judgment of Christopher Boorse, after consultation with international soloist and University of Delaware professor Xiang Gao, and also with other music professionals and students.
