Viola Course

The first edition of the ‘Viola Power International Course’ will take place in the city of Granada (Spain). At the emblematic and traditional andalusian place ‘Corrala de Santiago’ a maximum of ten selected violists will work and live in this exclusive meeting directed by spanish viola soloist Isabel Villanueva. The course welcome violists minimum 16 years old of advanced professional degree, bachelor and postgraduate levels.


The program includes three individual lessons per student with Isabel Villanueva; two group lessons of orchestral repertoire coached by Hanna Nisonen, principal viola of the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada; two stage presence workshops taught with Alessia Desogus and a final public concert of students. The program is combined with cultural activities including a guided group tour of the Alhambra, a flamenco concert and music talks.


Active students will be staying at the Corrala de Santiago on a full board basis.

The repertoire to be worked during these days must include a work for viola solo (will be performed at the final concert) and a piece of free choice.

For those students willing to improve technical aspects, a selection of studies and scales is recommended. Some chamber viola ensembles will be created and prepared to perform at the final concert.

The final concert will take place at the Corrala de Santiago on 6th September, Sunday  at 13h. All active students will receive a diploma.
