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.

Save the date for our
autumn viol play-in!

Saturday, 19 November 2016

Preliminary music has been posted
to our music files page. 
More will be added soon.

Interested in getting together informally to play viols?
Send a note to violsgwb@gmail.com and indicate your skill level and instrument size (treble, tenor, bass) and we will try to put you in touch with other local players.
