She is a founding member and former director of the Newberry Consort and the former director of Northwestern University Early Music Ensemble. She has also played with the New York Pro Musica and the Waverly Consort as well as many other U.S. and European ensembles and is a founding member of the ensembles Elizabethan Enterprise and Les Filles de Sainte-Colombe. She has recorded for the Harmonia Mundi USA label as member of the Newberry Consort, as a soloist in a set of Stradella solo cantatas (with Christine Brandes and Paul O'Dette) and in solo instrumental works with recorder player Marion Verbruggen. She has also appeared on the Decca, Columbia, Nonesuch, and Titanic labels.
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.
