International Viola Congress comes to UW

One of the musicians at the 30th International Viola Congress, held on campus last week, tries out an instrument at one of the luthier displays in the Music Building. Luthiers, in case you didn’t know, are makers of stringed instruments, and they came in large numbers to try to sell their wares to the participants. Music Professor (and of course, violist) Helen Callus served as host for the congress, which featured a wide variety of workshops and performances.
