Some of you may remember how the DVS was first announced 11 years ago at the Viola Festival in Dodrecht in February 2012. After more than a decade of official operation, we return to Dodrecht to celebrate our roots. In cooperation with the International Viola Academy (IVA), the DVS organizes a Viola Day in Dordrecht on Monday, May 29th 2023 (2e pinksterdag).
We are hoping for participation from all viola fans – amateurs, students and professionals – to celebrate the viola together with a full-day programme, including:
- Masterclasses for Viola Students and Young Talents (aged 26 or younger) with viola faculty from the IVA: Marcin Murawski, Emlyn Stam and Karin Dolman.
Selected students get a full one-hour masterclass. There are 9 spots available.
- Viola Ensemble (open to all participants!) led by Jeppe Moulijn
A four-part orchestra consisting entirely of VIOLAS!
Players of all levels are welcome (amateurs, students, pros).
We will be playing Gordon Jacob’s Suite for 8 violins (YouTube link), arranged especially for this viola ensemble with parts in varying difficulty; and possibly also a surprise composition! Sheet music will be sent in advance.
We rehearse together and give a performance at the end of the session!
- A Concert with contributions from DVS Delegates to the IVC 2023 in Thailand
- Second-hand sheet music marketplace
- Lunch and Afterparty (borrel)
