The Viola da Gamba Society of Greater New York Presents

The Annual Spring Matinée
A performance opportunity for members of the Greater New York chapter of the VdGS

Sunday May 31, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

At 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 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 12:30 PM in order to unpack and tune.
Please bring a stand!

Audience members should plan to arrive by 12:45 PM.
Register early to ensure you have a place. Performers need a friendly audience, so come, even if not to play!
