San Francisco Early Music Society SFEMS Baroque Workshop • Wendy Gillespie • Viola da gamba bootcamp in slippers

Join viola da gamba player Wendy Gillespie for a reboot of your viol playing!
Amaze your friends with your new-found skills and freedom as a player! In the privacy of your own boudoir, rediscover the close relationship you used to have with your viol, based on the following principles: if it’s comfortable and relaxed, it’s right; if it hurts, it’s wrong; if it sounds good, it is good; and giving a note a name does not make it sound any better. You are asked please to print the packet or open it on a different device from the one with which you are Zooming – we have lost people to confusion on their laptop and some have never been seen again.

Audience: All sizes and levels of viola da gamba experience are welcome.
Format: Lecture / Demo / Play along
Materials: A packet of materials will be distributed ahead of time.
Pitch: A=415Hz

SFEMS nationally renowned series of summer workshops, first held in 1980, are now online while we remain socially distant.
