Presented by the Australian Viola da Gamba Society Inc., in assocation with the Early Music Society of Queensland and the School of Music, University of Queensland, viola da gamba players from across Australasia, as well as overseas will meet for a four day tutored workshop. New for 2013 is the inclusion of baroque string players - violins, violas and cellos. The strings will join the viols in consorts, chamber music and have their own daily dedicated beginner session on viols. Our special guest teacher for 2013 is the celebrated Mary Springfels from the US, and joining her will be Polly Sussex from New Zealand, and Australian teachers Michael O'Loghlin, Patrice Connelly, Shannon Scheltema and Margaret Caley.
Demand is high, and it is possible we may have to limit places if enrolments exceed expectations. If you're coming from interstate or overseas, booking your flights early is recommended, as Easter is a very busy time for travel.
Patrice Connelly is the administrator and Michael O'Loghlin the Musical Director. For more information contact Patrice on patrice @ saraband.com.au (remove spaces when emailing) or phone +61 (0)7 5496 3439
