"We put on the Aronoff Chamber Music Festival and Series at Bastyr University each June. I feel Henry Bischofberger is one of a few really reputable instrument dealers in the area. I am a private violin and viola instructor and in the Spring I gave a master workshop for viola students and teachers at Henry Bischofberger Violins and will continue again next Spring. It was very successful! He has an "impressive pedigree" as a Swiss-trained, third-generation violin maker, but more importantly he's got a great instinct of his own for the instruments and bows he chooses to deal in. I think Henry's shop has a beautiful collection of inventory already since he opened. I am so impressed by the fact that he answers his own phone and does his own work." - Joyce Ramee, Co-Director of The Max Aronoff Viola Institute
