Events with Robin Ireland

Fantastic opportunities for string players of all ages: explore the viola or come to a 'Mainly Baroque' string orchestra workshop

Viola Workshops

Three times a year, Robin Ireland offers a day-long viola workshop at Ravenfield, South Yorkshire (Ravenfield is about 20 mins from Park Square, Sheffield).

The day consists of viola ensemble coaching, a masterclass, a group technical class looking at a particular aspect of viola technique, a session of listening to and/or comparing different performances of a major viola work on CDs, and a recital at the end of the afternoon given by Robin. Lunch and other refreshments are provided.

The workshops have proved enjoyable for all concerned and they attract amateurs, conservatoire and other students, older school-age pupils, and teachers.

For details of the next viola workshop see our website.

Robin directs programmes of baroque and other music for strings. The emphasis is on creating an enjoyable afternoon of music-making with an element of coaching. The workshops have proved very popular, providing a rare opportunity to play string orchestra repertoire.

These workshops take place three times a year on a Sunday afternoon. We meet at St Chad’s Church, Linden Avenue (off Abbey Lane), Woodseats. All string players welcomed.
