VdGS 3rd Coast - Special Benefit Concert: The Nymphs of the Rhine http://on.fb.me/1QhTBw2
June 3, 2016 7:00PM
Thanks to the Viola da Gamba Society of America (VdGSA)'s Consort Loan Program, Phillip Serna is partnering with Naperville North High School orchestra director Dana Green to start a viol consort program in Chicago's western suburbs. However, we need YOUR help! In an effort to engage the community, raise awareness about our work, we are holding a benefit concert to raise money to purchase viols once the loan period is exhausted. The Viola da Gamba Society 3rd Coast (VdGS Third Coast), New Comma Baroque's Phillip Serna and the Naperville North High School Department of Music will present a showcase attracting top viol players from across the Midwest, and indeed the country, to marathon Schenck's complete Nymphs of the Rhine. Please help us build a presence for Early Music in the western suburbs and consider giving!
