WHAT'S A PLAY-IN?
Here's is a brief guide to the event for those who have never attended a Play-in. Please download the flyer for full information. You can register here, on line (see below), or by regular postal mail.
PICK ONE TO PLAY: POT-LUCK CONSORT, COACHED CONSORT, OR NOVICE CLASS
1. Pot-luck consorts are chosen by lot. Playing levels are mixed, but sight reading is essential. Please let us know what instrument(s) you'll be bringing and if you're staying for the whole day.
2. Coached consorts are led by one of our NY professional players; parts may be doubled
3. If you’re a beginner or just coming back to the viol, take our free novice class. We’ll lend you an instrument!
Having trouble deciding? Call the registrar at 646-279-4379 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Please let us know if you’ll be bringing a dish to share and participating in the pot-luck lunch
The auction will start in the morning and continue through lunch and the meeting. The proceeds help us offer scholarships and extend our activities.
To donate, please call Jaimee Uhlenbrock at 845-255-3879 or Connie McDougald at 212-222-0631. We'll take both music-related and non-music-related items.
After lunch, we’ll discuss past and upcoming events and finances. Your participation in this meeting will help shape the organization’s future!
All participants are welcome at the final part of the day, an all-inclusive Viol Orchestra.
