Build a viola in only 4 days - live in front of an audience!
International Viola Congress 2018 in Rotterdam
From 20 to 24 November 2018 the International Viola Congress (IVC) will take place in Rotterdam, Holland. During these four days four string instrument makers will build a viola together.
The four school friends have known each other since their joint studies at the renowned violin making school "Newark School of Violin" and are today independent, experienced and successful string instrument makers. They have decided to build a viola together and live in front of an audience at the IVC, where a concert will take place with this viola at the end of the conference on Saturday, 24 November.
The four have set up a workshop in the entrance hall of the Hofpleintheater. Music4Viola is on site and reports every day in pictures on the progress of this demanding work.
The live viola builders are Chaim Achttienribbe from Amsterdam (NL), Kai-Thomas Roth from Somerset (UK), Jan van der Elst from Dordrecht (NL) and Gijsbert van Ziel from Rotterdam (NL).
