Meet around 1:45 p.m. When you arrive, ask a guide where the free concert will be performed.

Concert is free but if you wish to tour the rest of the library museum, admission is $12. Parking is free.

This event is cross-posted in other meetup groups.

    About 1689 Baumgartner Stradivari violin

    This early period Stradivari was acquired by Gordon Jeffrey from Robert Masters, the concertmaster of the Bath (England) Festival Orchestra during Yehudi Menuhin's tenure as conductor. The instrument was used in many recordings made by the Orchestra under Menuhin's direction. Étienne Périlhon of Paris owned it in the early 1950s, followed by P. Nicholson of Folkestone, England, in the early 1960s. In 1963, Mr. Fritz Baumgartner of Basel, Switzerland, acquired the violin. In 1986 Gordon Jeffrey, a great patron of music and scion of the family that founded London Life Insurance Company, bequeathed it to the University of Western Ontario, from which an anonymous donor purchased it in 1997.

    Anonymous loan
    Acquired: 1997
    Value: $5 million

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
