Christopher Ulbricht began his training at the Violin Making School of America in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1997. He worked at Peter Prier and Sons in the repair shop from 2001-2003. After graduation in 2003, he and Theodore Skreko moved to Indianapolis and opened Indianapolis Violins, a full service violin shop specializing in new making, located in downtown Indianapolis.
In his making, Christopher finds inspiration in the works of the Italian masters. He has also designed his own personal models of violin, viola, and cello. He hand makes his oil varnish and enjoys collaborating with other makers. His instruments can be found in the hands of professional student musicians all over the United States as well as in Chile. Chris actively participates in the Violin Society of America and pursues the state of the art, yearly, at the Oberlin violin making workshop.
