Registration Deadline
December 24th, 2016


Join coaches Loren Ludwig, John Mark Rozendaal, Jane Hershey, and Zoe Weiss to explore some wonderful consort music by a community of London-based composers. Though not as well known today as Jenkins or Lawes, this early modern “Rat Pack” synthesized the inherited musical language of Elizabethan polyphony with the sounds of the Italian madrigal to create a new idiom of expressive andengaging consort music.

The workshop is open to all viol players including beginners. In addition, pre-formed consorts are invited to begin now to prepare music of their choice for the workshop focusing on the composers listed above. You may register in up to two pre-formed consorts, to be scheduled throughout the day. If you are unsure about appropriate music for your consort, feel free to contact the music director at lml4f@virginia.edu

If you decide to take advantage of this opportunity to dig deeper into our repertoire by preparing it in advance of coaching, contact Sybil Kevy (thebarbate@gmail.com) and let her know who is in yourconsort.

Players not registering in a pre-formed consort are also urged to register as soon as possible when the flyer comes out.

* The Rat Pack was a supergroup of actors originally centered on their leader, Humphrey Bogart, and including
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.
