The University of Tennessee is thrilled to announce the 16th Annual Viola Celebration to be held October 1-2, 2022. This year’s event features numerous master class opportunities, technique workshops, a return of the All-Viola Orchestra and a return of the Ensemble Competition! Please note that the competition will likely run Friday evening, September 30 – stay tuned for details but if you plan to participate, expect to arrive by late Friday afternoon. We have worked to provide options to accommodate as many violists as possible, including full, in-person participation, a youth Saturday-Only option and for those who are unable to join in-person at this time, a virtual option. This Viola Celebration is for all violists - to gather, learn from each other and hear wonderful viola music.
Come join us as we celebrate music-making through the viola!
