The Viola da Gamba Society-New England is pleased to announce this year’s grant recipient for the Gian Lyman Silbiger Grant – Joshua Garvey, who has organized a special project in collaboration with three Boston Area organizations: The Home for Little Wanderers, The Triangle Program, and Tunefoolery.
Finally we have launched! As you can see, not all the content from the old website has been migrated to the new one, but that will happen gradually over the next couple of months. Thanks to Ed Fleming for doing such a stellar job as our webmaster for the last 13 years!
The Ferrabosco Project The 2001-2002 season marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Viola da Gamba Society-New England. To celebrate the occasion the Society wanted a permanent memento, and decided a collaborative CD was appropriate. Founding member Bruce Bellingham suggested a subject for the CD, the complete four-part fantasias of Alfonso Ferrabosco II.
