Recital Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire
200 Jennens Road, B4 7XR
Tickets available on the door
The Absolute Zero Viola Quartet is made up of players from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Welsh National Opera Orchestra. Having been together since 1995, the quartet is the creator of the world’s first viola quartet CD recognising that an all viola string quartet is rather rare!
Violists from around the world have been invited to enter the first Cecil Aronowitz Viola Competition. Organised by Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham City University and the British Viola Society, the winner will be awarded £2,000 along with several high profile recitals as part of Birmingham Conservatoire’s Concert Series.
Dedicated to Cecil Aronowitz, the South African violist and long-term collaborator with Benjamin Britten, the competition is open to applications from violists from anywhere in the world, at the age of 21 or under at the time of the competition. All are welcome to join us to watch the competitions and a mini-festival of other events.
