Partners and sponsors

Without external support, a competition of this dimension and with the highest international standards cannot be realized. The international Hindemith Viola Competition is therefore fortunate to have gained strong partners who help and support us in the realization of the competition.

University of Music and Performing Arts Munich

For the first time, the International Hindemith Viola Competition will take place as a cooperation of the Walter Witte Viola Foundation together with the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich in October 2021. We are very pleased about the cooperation with one of the most important and diverse educational institutions for music, dance and theater professions in Germany.

The Foundation endeavours to promote and cultivate music in the spirit of Paul Hindemith, most particularly contemporary music, to disseminate the works of Paul Hindemith and to awaken understanding for his art, bring about scholarly research in the area of music and support the distribution of the works resulting from this.
