About ABRAV - Associação Brasileira de Violistas

ABRAV aims to promote the enhancement and integration of knowledge related to the reality of professional activity in our country.

ABRAV‘s proposition is to promote the expansion and connection of dialogues among the various musical environments that constitute the praxis of the viola, both in the performance field and in the pedagogical and academic spheres. We believe that sharing knowledge with a spirit of solidarity will allow us to overcome challenges, and that by being united we will be stronger and consequently our practices will be more efficient.
