The VdGS-NE's Silbiger Grant promotes opportunities for players and singers to present programs featuring the rich repertoire of music for voices and viols from the late 16th to the early 18th centuries.
The grant provides $600 for the viol players. Other expenses must be borne by the group.
Invitations for proposals are posted in the early spring; the successful group for the following academic year is chosen before the summer.
The grant commemorates the life and work of Gian Lyman Silbiger, viol player, teacher, composer and organist, who taught at the Longy School of Music, McGill University, and Brandeis University in the 1960s and 1970s.
Questions about the grant may be directed to Viola da Gamba Society-New England, P.O. Box 192, Belmont MA 02478 as may donations to the program, which is entirely supported by the generosity of VdGS-NE members and friends. Or send email to: SilbigerGrant@vdgsne.org
