Invitation to the 43rd International Viola Congress


Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,

We are very excited about hosting the first International Viola Congress to be held in Italy in Cremona, a fascinating town with a rich artistic and musical history. Loved by string players, Cremona witnessed the development of violin making resulting in modern stringed instruments. Its contemporary luthiers, flourishing violin makers’ school and the Violin Museum are internationally recognized landmarks.

A unique event of the highest level with a focus on musicians of the younger generation, the congress will contribute to the richness, vibrancy and diversity of contemporary musical life, leaving a lasting impression on participants and audiences from around the world.
