Host Families

The musicians visiting the International Viola Congress from near and far are often paying this trip out of their own pockets. Musicians’ salaries everywhere are notoriously meager, and sometimes they even have to turn in salary for the days they travel to Rotterdam. Yet others are students with hardly any income at all. Therefore, they need all the support they can get!

So we are looking for HOST FAMILIES in Rotterdam (and immediate surroundings) who can offer these musicians of all ages and nationalities a bed, couch, or mattress to sleep on (optionally in a separate  room, with access to a bath and some breakfast) during their stay in Rotterdam.

In return for your kind hospitality, we offer free tickets for our evening concerts in De Doelen on November 22nd and November 23rd, with world-class viola soloists!
