Music for Canberra in collaboration with the ANZ Viola Society presents Cafe Viola, a mini-festival of all things viola including viola ensemble repertoire reading (duos, trios, quartets ‘en masse’), an opportunity for pre-exam mini-masterclassing of AMEB solo repertoire, and a micro-concert by our host Robert Harris.

A past Principal Viola of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and other professional orchestras in Australia, NZ, Asia, Europe and North America Robert visits Canberra annually as a Guest Principal for Canberra Symphony, for recitals at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, Wesley Music Centre and for his ANZVS Cafe Viola gatherings.

Cafe Viola caters for all levels of violists, from the absolute beginner to the seasoned professional. It is also open to members from all string families, especially those interested in orchestra string programs and ensembles. We look forward to seeing you there! Tickets can be purchased here.
