VdGS-NE March Workshop: Treble Fingering with Catharina Meints

On Sunday March 21, 2021 from 3:00-4:30, the VdGS-NE presents its next special topics workshop entitled: “Exploring fingering possibilities on the treble viol.” The guest presenter is Catharina Meints: professor emerita of cello and viola da gamba at Oberlin.

Using a number of exercises to compare “bass” style and “diatonic” style fingerings, Cathy will discuss the merits of both, and propose a hybrid style.
Several pieces of standard consort literature will be discussed with respect to fingering options. Participants will receive four pages of standard consort music with the suggested fingerings.

Note: This workshop is for trebles only, but should be interesting for players at many levels.

For more information please consult the workshop flyer.

As previously, the fee for the workshop is $15. If this poses a challenge for you, contact our treasurer. The signup deadline is March 14.

Zoom links and musical examples will be emailed to participants upon successful registration.
