Welcome to the Utah Viola Society!

We are a fun-loving group of alto-clef reading violists who get together regularly to celebrate all things Viola! We are interested in promoting your recital, helping find teachers for students, providing masterclass opportunities with world renown guest-artists, sponsoring guest recitals, providing information about all things VIOLA! If you are interested in joining us in our alto clef adventures, please sign up for our newsletter or subscribe to our blog. You’ll stay on top of all things Viola in the Beehive State.

Join us on September 29 for Viola Day 2018! Our special guest will be Brant Bayless, Principal Viola of the Utah Symphony.
