The Violin to Viola event with Ren Martin-Doïké and Tovin Allers is being moved to Friday July 10, 2020 at 1:30pm EDT, due to technical difficulties (power outage in Ottawa).

NAC Orchestra section violist Ren Martin-Doïké and her guest, uOttawa viola student Tovin Allers will talk about the art of transitioning from violin to viola. They will work with materials by William Primrose as well as with Campagnoli's 41 Caprices, and will discuss their relevance in standard orchestral audition repertoire for violinists who are considering switching to viola.

This event is a co-presentation of Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra and l’Orchestre de la Francophonie.

This event will be livestreamed to the NAC Music Education & Training Facebook page.
