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.
