International Public Registry for Fine Instruments Launching in 2022

The Si-Yo Music Society Foundation, Inc. plans to launch a new free, international public registry for fine instruments in early 2022


The registry will be an informational and educational resource for all collectors, investors, makers, buyers, sellers, researchers, insurers, and arts institutions.

Details about fine instruments are often difficult to find or lost in unknown sources. With this registry, the problem of leaving members uncertain about instruments' value, history, authenticity, and integrity will no longer be questioned.

“Tragically, the records for numerous fine instruments have been lost over many generations due to upheaval from plagues, wars, and natural disasters,” said Eva Lerner-Lam, Si-Yo Music Society Foundation, Inc. Chairwoman and President. “Some have simply been thrown out by those who didn’t recognize their significance.

There will be an extensive process for those who wish to add to the registry. With the data collected, Si-Yo will store it on a cybersecure, independently managed system that is blockchain-ready.

Having already accumulated information on several hundred stringed instruments and bows from museums and private collections, Si-Yo is testing its functionality with a multidisciplinary group of beta testers to prepare for the launch.

Si-Yo is also working with museums, such as Museo del Violino in Cremona, Italy, to arrange a backup archive for their databases.

Founded 1966, the Si-Yo Music Society Foundation is based in New York City's neighborhood of Lincoln Square. The organization seeks to bring classical music to a global community of music lovers.
