Local Scotch Plains resident Ira B. Kraemer’s avocation is his vocation: fine string instruments. A professional violist and conductor, Ira serves the professional string players in the NJ-NY metro area with his business, Ira B. Kraemer & Co. He repairs, restores and sells violins, violas, cellos, basses and bows. Time permitting; he will even make a new violin or viola in house.
It is a privilege to have Ira “show and tell” about New Jersey violins at the monthly Tuesday evening meeting of the Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood on November 25th. From his extensive collection– one of the largest on the east coast—Ira will bring a selection of instruments and teach us about the construction of violins and the variation in design during the last 200 years.
Mr. Kraemer is listed in the “Who’s Who in America” and the “Who’s Who in the World” because of his conducting a youth orchestra in Middlesex County for 13 years.
This informative and special meeting is free and open to everyone. The meeting takes place at the Scotch Hills Country Club on Plainfield Avenue and Jerusalem Road in Scotch Plains, on Tuesday evening, November 25 at 8:00PM. Fellowship and refreshments follow the meeting.
