We are proud to build on a family legacy of excellence in music.

 

Our grandfather was a critically acclaimed violinist. He taught us the importance of quality having played a Stradivarius and Guarneri for many performance.

From child prodigy to concertmaster and first violin with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Philip Frank was recognized as a virtuoso. His brother Bernard was a successful pianist and the two often accompanied each other.


Our father, was an award winning recording engineer. He taught us the importance of high fidelity and innovation having been at the forefront of audio engineering.

Among many accomplishments, Jim Frank has won a Gemini Award, a Golden Reel Award and a Double Platinum Record. He has worked with artists such as Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel and The Guess Who.
