Suzie Napper will be our guest of honour for this concert. We are delighted that she is going to join us and we can enter into the magical world of the Viola da Gamba. Suzie is well know for being a dynamic and outside of the box kind of performer. We look forward to performing with her and can’t wait to experience the richness that this instrument has to offer.

Regina is the home of a consort of Viols that have been hidden away in the deep recesses of the Conservatory of Performing Arts. This year we have 4 cello players who are hard at work learning to play these instruments. When Suzie works with us for the week, she will also be doing a workshop for the Viol players. We hope she is able inspire local players to pick up the Viol and seize the passion.

We are super excited about the repertoire she has suggested and you will be intrigued with the way the Viola da Gamba and the Cello play similar yet very differently  in the ensemble.

Suzie will be offering a workshop so we can all learn the inner workings of this wonderful instrument. She is fun loving and extremely dynamic this is a workshop you don’t want to miss. Watch our Facebook page for more details.
