Welcome to the Acceptd audition and application portal for the Virtual Violin Summer Festival (V2SF)!  We are delighted you found your way here and look forward to reviewing your materials. 

For 4 weeks, advanced high-school and college-level violinists ages 15-23 get to engage with an online community of fellow violinists who are passionate about their instrument and learning from a mindset of mindfulness and curiosity.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in lessons, classes, master classes, and other online events with master teachers and performers from the comfort and safety of their own home. 

We hope you are able to join us!
