The International Viola Society (IVS) has come up with a nice initiative during this pandemic, where travel is next to impossible and our cherished International Viola Congresses (IVCs) have been put on hold. There will instead be a monthly livestreamed programme from various national sections of the IVS.
First up is the Canadian Viola Society (CVS) (more details below), to be followed in the coming months by the Turkish Viola Society, the Polish Viola Society and … the Dutch Viola Society! We will of course keep you informed as more details emerge.
The livestreams are of course free of charge, and available to all violists around the world, whether or not you are a member of an IVS section.
Here is a trailer produced by our very own IVS board representative Karin Dolman:
