Memories from Congresses past!
17 MONTHS AGO
Our Congress Co-Chair, Prof Donald Maurice shares one of his memories from the 2001 International Viola Congress:
“Following on from a stirring and memorable Powhiri (a Maori welcome), swarms of violists, emerged from the National War Memorial to the accompaniment of the imposing Carillon Bell Tower, wended their way up to the even more imposing Dominion Museum Building, while improvising on a theme supplied to them by Carillonist, Timothy Hurd.
This is the stuff of Kiwi International Viola Congresses!”
