Commissioning a violin from Michael Prokop is a realisation of the Kendall National Violin Competition's vision to promote young, accomplished and dedicated Australian makers as well as our rising stars and virtuosi. I sincerely welcome this young colleague to share the inspiring experience of this competition and the challenge of making violins of excellence. While violin making is necessarily a solitary work, the collaboration of makers who are passionate about skill and knowledge is essential to building a national tradition of instrument making in Australia. The Kendall National Violin Competition is just the kind of enterprise to promote this aspiration.
