Happy New Year from the UVS!

Dear Friends,
We had an absolutely great time at Viola Day in November!  We experienced the virtuoso artistry of our guest Toby Appel, along with an insightful and entertaining masterclass, and discussion about viola icon Rebecca Clarke.  We had fun catching up with colleagues from around the state, and had a room full of instruments to play.  What could make a bunch of violists happier?One more huge THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible:

  • Our Institutional Partners: the University of Utah and Utah State University.
  • Season Sponsors: Scoggins Violins and Salini Violins
  • Event Sponsors: Moroz Violins and Prier & Sons Violins 
  • All of you: the members of the Utah Viola Society!!!

As we turn the page into 2024, we are starting off with a lot of excitement.  One of the world’s great violists, Tabea Zimmermann, will be making a rare visit to North America, and spending a whole week in Utah!  Here is the preliminary list of events:

  • Saturday, February 17: Masterclass at Brigham Young University, 2:00-4:00 PM, BYU Music Building Room 4146
  • Monday, February 19: Primrose Memorial Concert – Solo Recital, 5:00 PM, BYU Concert Hall
