Program Description

This is a special focus group for six emerging professional viol players to work with Mary Springfels for almost 3 hours every day! The group meets for two sessions daily: a 90 minute class in the morning, to work on technique and consorts in Venetian and Venetian-influenced repertoire; a late afternoon class will explore special repertoire topics with Mary.  In addition to these two sessions, there are other afternoon classes in viols, mixed consorts and vocal/instrumental ensembles with other Early Music Week faculty. There is a surcharge for the Viol Intensive program.  Please ask for application materials for this class.

Scholarships are also offered by Early Music America, The Viola da Gamba Society of America, and the American Recorder Society. Deadline for both is April 15, 2010.
