THE ANNUAL SPRING SOIRÉE
A performance opportunity for members of the VdGS/GNY
The Choir Room at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields"
487 Hudson Street at Grove Street, NYC
(1 train to Christopher St./ABCDEFM trains to West 4th)
This free event, in which members play for members, provides a chance for our chapter of the Viola da Gamba Society to come together, to meet new friends, and for us 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 at 7:00 PM in order to unpack and tune.
Please bring a music stand!
Audience members should plan to arrive by 7:30 PM.
Register early to ensure you have a place. Performers need a friendly audience, so come, even if not to play!

Please include the following information in the “Your comments” area: (1) the title and composer of the piece you intend to play; (2) what, if any, refreshments you plan to bring; (3) whether you would like to play ad-hoc consorts afterwards.
