During the viola institute, you will experience an intensive week of orchestral, solo, and technique master classes with an outstanding artist faculty. You will have the opportunity to play with the institute's viola ensemble, attend viola master classes, and perform in a student recital.
The viola institute is an intensive experience, designed for motivated violists in grades 9-12. Each day, you'll have lectures, master classes, ensemble rehearsal, and other scheduled activities. With a focus on orchestral and solo repertoire, this program is ideal for students who may go on to study viola at the college or conservatory level.
Each summer, the viola institute faculty includes performers and educators from major symphony orchestras, colleges, and Interlochen Arts Academy.
Orchestral Master Class
Students will have the opportunity to perform required audition excerpts in the orchestral master class presented by Lynn Ramsey, viola instructor at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
