Viola da Gamba Dojo Play-In/Concert, May 14, 2011

The Viola da Gamba Dojo of New York's Spring Play-In/Concert is now confirmed for Saturday, May 14 at Our Saviour's Atonement Lutheran Church at 178 Bennett Avenue.

Repertoire to be played will include works at a wide range of levels of difficulty, so no player is too young and none too advanced to play. The regular Dojo attendees are preparing William Byrd's In nomine à 5 #5, madrigals of John Wilbye, and items from the Repertoire of the Viola da Gamba Dojo. Additional repertoire will be chosen appropriate to the players who plan to play. I will send parts to players who would like to play but are unable to regularly attend the Viola da Gamba Dojo's Saturday morning sessions.

The afternoon's schedule will be as follows:
1:30 Set-up
2:00 Rehearsal
3:00 The youngest players will join the rehearsal in progress.
3:30 Break
4:00 Play-In/Concert

And please watch this space for further developments regarding The Viola da Gamba Dojo of New York's Boston Early Music Festival performance on Saturday, June 18; and The Viola da Gamba Dojo of New York's collaboration with the English viol consort, Gutted, in early July.
