Tutors: Alison Crum, Roy Marks, Ibi Aziz and Peter Wendland
Sun 14 – Fri 19 Jul
One of the most prestigious and well-established summer schools for viol players in the land, our International Viol Summer School, directed by Alison Crum, offers an invaluable chance for viol players of all ages with a particular interest in English consort music to work with members of the world renowned Rose Consort of Viols for the best part of a week. There will also be optional sessions on several other aspects of viol music, such as madrigals, consort songs, early renaissance repertoire and the art of continuo playing, as well as lectures, demonstrations and a concert given by the tutors in the evening sessions. Those wishing to work in depth on repertoire of their own choice will be able to do so in some sessions. We are looking for experienced players with good sight reading skills capable of playing at least two sizes of viol. Please note that this course finishes after lunch on the final day.
