Welcome Viol Players!
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2017 VdGSA Young Players’ Weekend. This year we are excited to be hosting you in the warm and wonderful state of TEXAS at Camp Allen in Navasota (approximately an hour away from Houston.)
The weekend will include a range of activities for viol players of all ability levels. In addition to coached consort playing we will offer three short workshops on topics ranging from the hexachord, to mapping the viol, to old notation reading, as well as a masterclass for those interested in sharing music they’ve been working on.
We will gather on Friday night to have a play-in for all participants. On Saturday night we will offer a voluntary masterclass led by our world-class guest coaches, Wendy Gillespie and Sarah Mead.
There is no age limit for YPW. Please note, however, that the facilities offer dorm-style accommodations only; if you are comfortable sleeping in a bunk-bed, go ahead and sign up! Even if you aren’t, you know we will have an awesome time so you should sign up anyways.
I hope you will join us and this stellar guest faculty for our eighth annual Young Players Weekend. See you in March!
