JAVS Fall 2023

He was instrumental in the 2000 transfer of the International Viola-Gesellschaft to the International Viola Society to make it more international in appeal and in this regard a founding member of the current IVS. As if these contributions were not enough, he organized the highly successful 2008 Bratschistentag (Viola Day) in

Düsseldorf and was highly involved in the organization of IVC 39 in Würzburg in 2011. In recognition of his many contributions to the viola and the organizations that promoted it, he was a most deserving recipient of the IVS Silver Alto Clef in 2008.

IVS Officers, Linköping in 2000, L-R: Dr. Ronald Schmidt (Germany), Uta Lenkewitz von Zahn (Germany), Dr. Dwight Pounds (USA), Dr. David Dalton (USA), Ann Frederking (Canada), and Emile Cantor (Holland and Denmark).
