Simone Gramaglia, violist of the Quartetto di Cremona, writes:
"Master4Strings, courses for viola and chamber music founded by Simone Gramaglia and his wife Roberta Ardito, is starting its 3rd season. Based in Bari and completely financed by private funds, the program is designed to provide the highest possible level of training to young and gifted musicians in southern Italy with limited financial resources. The program has grown and this year counts 10 viola students and 5 chamber music groups. This year there will also be a guest teacher every month."
