2021 Young Players' Weekend

2021 VdGSA Young Players' Weekend

Welcome, Viol Players!

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2021 VdGSA Young Players' Weekend. Because of the current situation in the world with the pandemic, this workshop will be held onlin—no travel required.

The weekend will include a range of activities for viol players of all ability levels. We will gather on Friday night to meet all the participants.  There will be three sessions spread out over Saturday and Sunday and led by Amy Domingues, Gail Ann Schroeder, and myself.  On Saturday night we will offer a voluntary masterclass led by our guest coaches, Amy Domingues and Gail Ann Schroeder.

There is no age limit to attend YPW. If you feel that you are a young player, you are welcome to attend.
