Viola Ensemble Groups and Playing Days

Members of the British Viola Society sometimes arrange special Playing Days, including Viola Ensemble playing, special music or a theme, or a well-known conductor (or sometimes a combination of all of these!)

For one-day and longer courses supported by BVS members see the Courses page.



Are you interested in joining the Sheffield Viola Ensemble? This new group is for adult players who want to get together approximately once a month to play great music, just for pleasure, in a friendly and supportive group.
