The British Viola Society, originally formed as the English Viola Society in September 2007 by the late  Professor John White and Dr Louise Lansdown (President) is undergoing a metamorphosis. The society is going from strength to strength, aiming to support, promote and encourage every aspect of playing, composing and research relevant to the viola in Great Britain. The rich and vast heritage of wonderful British violists, instruments, pedagogues and compositions gives the society a vast and multi-faceted fabric.

This society exists for the benefit of violists, students, amateurs and professionals and aspires to facilitate the sharing of information, pedagogical ideas, new compositions, set-up developments, publications and anything related to viola news. Please send any information you would like us to advertise for you pertaining to concerts, publications of viola music, teaching, congresses etc: if you would like to get more  involved, join the society. We would love to hear from you and will have a space on our website where this information will be placed.

The British Viola Society is one of 19 sections belonging to the International Viola Society. It is the International Viola Society that hosts an International Viola Congress nearly every year, in a different part of the world,
