The Viola da Gamba Society of Greater New York Presents

Sunday May 22, 2016, 1-3 pm

The Annual Spring Soirée

A performance opportunity for members of the Greater New York chapter of the VdGS

The home of Jillian Samant
26 E. 22nd St. #9, NYC (subway: F/M/N/R/6 to 23rd St)

This free event, in which members play for members, provides a chance for us to come together, to meet new friends, and to play for one another in a comfortable and judgment-free environment. You might come to overcome stage fright, you might come to try out a piece you’ve been working on, or you might come to play, just for the fun of it. You may choose to perform or to be a member of the audience. All ages and levels are encouraged. Solos, duos, consorts and mixed ensembles (with at least one player a chapter member) are welcome. After the concert, please stay for refreshments, to chat with your fellow chapter members, and—if time permits—to read consort music we’ll have on-hand. Performers need to arrive by 12:30 in order to unpack and tune. There is no need to bring a stand. Audience members should plan to arrive by 12:45. Register early to ensure you have a place. Performers need a friendly audience, so come, even if not to play! To register for this event: 1. Download the Print out the form below and return it to Martha McGaughey (address below). 2.
