Welcome to the Greater Washington-Baltimore Chapter of the 
Viola da Gamba Society of America (VdGSA)

The mission of our organization is to encourage the awareness, study, and performance of the viola da gamba in our community. We meet several times during the year for play-in sessions and sponsor workshops for all levels of viol players.   We welcome new members of all ages and skill levels.  While most activities take place in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, we invite and encourage participants from Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia to join us.
