We are delighted that Michael Kimber, a renowned violist, composer, and pedagogue, will be our featured guest artist. The day’s activities will include viola ensemble, masterclass, and technique classes, and will culminate in a short concert of Dr. Kimber’s works at the end of the day.  Viola day is open to violist of all levels (ages 12 and up), including teachers.
