The University of Tennessee is thrilled to announce the 13th Annual Viola Celebration will be held November 9-10, 2019. This year’s event will be a special Viola Celebration examining the topic of Auditions. From a young age, auditions are a fact of life for violists, and they continue to present specific challenges to musicians all the way through professional levels. To perform your best at auditions for Solo & Ensemble Festivals, Chair Placements, Youth Orchestra, All State, College Admittance, Summer Festivals and Professional Orchestras requires a set of skills that we rarely have the time to fully examine. This weekend event will delve into the topic of auditions for an in-depth study with professional violists who are experts at teaching audition skills. The weekend is packed with audition related activities for violists of all levels, so come join us for a weekend exploration of Auditions!
More details will be posted soon, including schedule, additional faculty and the new prizes for our Viola Ensemble Competition.
