Helen Poole Marriott Viola Award

In 2018, esteemed London string player Helen Poole graciously donated her beloved “Marriott” viola to YAPCA for the development of young violists in our school.

This generous gift to the school will allow students, particularly those who are contemplating the transition to viola, to do so with minimal financial burden. We are grateful to Helen for her confidence in the school to promote the viola and to make enduring use of the instrument that flourished in her hands for so long.
