Four full days devoted to fun, friendship, and exploring new pathways through the viola. Highlights include:

  • Special Guest Artists: Kim Kashkashian, Robert Vernon, Elmar Oliveira, and PIVC Winners Ayane Kozasa and Zhanbo Zheng
  • Ohio Showcase: Featuring Oberlin Alumni and some of Ohio’s finest teachers, performers, and students
  • Recitals: Featuring familiar favorites and the best new viola music
  • Health and Wellness: Relax and unwind through daily sessions
  • Workshops: Opportunities to actively participate in performance and educational workshops
  • Lectures: Discover new aspects about the viola through informative sessions
  • Vendor Exhibits: Outfit your instrument and yourself with the best viola swag
  • Master Classes: A chance to learn from established and emerging teachers
  • Competitions: More than $5,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs through our new Youth Solo Competitions
  • Performance Opportunities: Join in as we premiere a new viola ensemble work commissioned especially for the festival

Online registration opens November 2, 2015.  I'm also biased because I will be presenting a workshop on shoulders and health, but it should be awesome!
