Talented students in Sibelius Academy - a part of Uniarts of Helsinki, Finland - have a possibility to borrow our Jean Baptiste Vuillaume violin and Noel Burke bow for some years to help them in their studies to become a professional artist. Both the violin and the bow have had several talented users over the years.
The violin is currently played by Öykü Melis Sahin, who has earlier played in youth orchestras in several countries. She is selected to Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s Apprenticeship Program and will be playing in the orchestra, in three projects. The Noel Burke bow is used by Sibelius Academy student Aimar Tobalina.
