Based in the Chicago area, Dr. Phillip Serna’s award-winning outreach program Viols in Our Schools works to bring the early western string instrument family known as the viola da gamba into many area schools – demonstrating solo literature from the Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical periods for treble viol, tenor viol, bass viol & violone. Please help us make viols accessible to both young and old.
