Thank you for your support of Viola Day 2.0!!! We couldn’t do it without our sponosors! Our deepest gratitude goes to our sponsors:
Peter Prier and Sons Violins
Scoggins and Scoggins Violins
NSA Music Supplies
Enormous thanks to UVS President Brad Ottesen for putting all the pieces together and making Viola Weekend happen! None of this would have happened without Brad, so please thank him when you see him! (He is the mastermind behind the alto clef cookies!)
A big, warm, rich c-string, heartfelt thank you to Roger Chase for making Viola Weekend such a huge success! From the week at USU, to the masterclass on Viola Day, to his grace and humor and willingness to be interviewed onstage with our very special segment “Teatime with Roger.” (Very special knitterly thanks to Denise Cheung for the custom made alto clef pillows!!!) Most importantly, thanks to Roger for his incredible artistry, his genuine personality, and his unparalleled viola playing and musicianship; thank you Roger for sharing your talents with us this weekend. Thank you to Michiko Otaki for your masterful and sensitive piano playing!
And THANK YOU to every single violist, student, parent, teacher, spouse, and curious person who joined Utah Viola Society or who attended an event. Without your support and membership we couldn’t do this work for the viola community. THANK YOU!!!!!
