Time: 1pm for a 1.30pm start. Two or three hours, depending on contributions from members.
There will be a charge of £1 a head for the use of the venue.
IMPORTANT NEWS: Following on from the contribution made by Oreste De Tomasso, who played some viola da gamba music at the last meeting, we have decided to open up our doors to the Scottish viol community. This is long overdue, as the viola da mano and viola d’arco are sister instruments. It is our hope that more viol players come and join our quarterly meetings. You could perform one very short piece, or a longer set; play solo or ensemble; give an illustrated talk about an aspect of viola technique, history, publication, manuscript – anything that you feel is of interest. Our society encourages performances from complete beginners through to seasoned performers, all are equal.
If anyone wishes to make a presentation, please contact Rob MacKillop with some details: firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, just turn up at the address stated above. Any questions, ask Rob.
