2017 WVU Viola Day: September 23, 2017
Hello Viola Friends,
You are cordially invited to our 4th annual West Virginia University Viola Day. It will be held at the WVU Creative Arts Center on Saturday, October 1. The day will begin with registration at 9:00am and will conclude with a faculty recital at 5:00pm.
Activities will include master classes, technique class, lectures, “viola yoga,” vendors, and performances by renowned guest violists, Timothy Deighton of Penn State University and Katrin Meidell of Ball State University, as well as, WVU Viola Professor Andrea Houde.
WVU Viola Day is open to students of all ages, teachers, professionals, and anyone who loves the viola. Please contact Prof. Houde if you have an interest in performing in a master class. Any performer that has prepared solo repertoire will be considered as a master class participant.
Vendors from multiple states will be on-site for minor repairs, bow rehairs, and to display instruments (not just violas!) and accessories. Please let us know if you have specific requests for our vendors.
Last year we had at least four states represented among our attendees and violists of all ages and abilities. We hope that even more can join us this year, so please help spread the word!
Registration Fee: $25 payable via check or cash at the event
Registration Form Online: deadline September 23
All the best,
Andrea Priester Houde
Assistant Professor of Viola
