June 1-3, 2018 – University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
The Viola da Gamba Society 3rd Coast is pleased to announce our partnership with the Whitewater Early Music Festival, merging our annual workshops in order to provide more opportunities to all of our members. Organized by the Oak Park Recorder School, the festival features fantastic line up of some of the best early music teachers in all the USA! Whitewater Early Music Festival is a mixed-instrument workshop featuring classes for all levels from beginning to advanced: from recorders to reeds and wind band instruments (inc. crumhorns, racketts, shawms & sackbutts), viol consorts, and voices. There will be vendor exhibits, informal late-night playing sessions, an all-festival ending concert, and so much more. Workshop pitch will be A415 with Gayle Neuman leading a Friday-night session for recorders and viols alongside programming led by viola da gamba faculty Kate Shuldiner, Phillip Serna & Lisa Terry. Come for the weekend and leave with a lifetime of music friends. What could be better?!
