The First NCVS Viola Salon is coming up on Feb. 23, 2014 and YOU are invited!

February 23, 2014 2:30-5pm
UC Davis, Music Building

Ellen Ruth Rose, Viola
Featured guest artist: Ellen Ruth Rose
If you are attending, please bring a student, friend, teacher, or other viola-centric-minded person so we have a nice collection of ears, ideas, and opinions to share.

We have 4-6 performers volunteering to play for a master class segment.  We have a professional accompanist "on staff" for the day.  Please let me (Katie) know if you'd like to volunteer to perform for the master class segment so we can plan the time.  If we have more volunteers than time, we'll just have to plan the next salon sooner!

FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT:
Katie Wreede: vlazville@earthlink.net


If you are scheduled to perform, please get me PDFs of your accompaniment parts ASAP so our guest pianist can take a look beforehand.  Also plan on coming a bit early to acquaint yourselves with each other.


Things to bring: anything you think would be interesting to violists, chamber viola music to read, violistic ideas, poems, photos, pillows, food to share, your viola, curiosity and enthusiasm

Please keep in touch about attending so we can plan the day, but if you don't know in advance, show up anyway.  There's always room for more violas!

This would also be a lovely time to renew your membership in NCVS, which helps us fund our wonderful ViolaMANIA events and other NCVS activities!
