Annual Fall Matinée

Sunday December 7 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Stern College for Women
245 Lexington Ave, between 34th and 35th Street. First floor, room 101

The Viola da Gamba Society of Greater New York Presents the Annual Fall Matinée: A performance opportunity for members of the Greater New York chapter of the VdGSA. 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 start to conquer 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. If you are playing a piece that needs accompaniment, bring the bass part and it will be played! 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 at 12:30 in order to unpack and tune. We will need a list of names to give to security, so please let us know if you plan to come, even if it is just to listen.

Please bring a stand. Audience members should plan to arrive by 12:45. Register early to be sure to have a place. Performers need a friendly audience, so come, even if not to play! A = 415.
