Workshop Information

VdGS-NE one-day workshops are a great way to get together with other viol players from the New England area.  Participants come for the fun of playing together, but also to expand their musical and technical knowledge on the viol – all under the expert guidance of first rate viol teachers. The flyer and accompanying application form for our October workshop will be available in early September. You will be able to access it by clicking here.
