The York Consort
re: Friends of Vienna Concert
The viol is an old instrument that is NOT the predecessor of the violin. In fact, even though it's a bowed string instrument, it's closer to the guitar! You can hear the York Consort, four "gambists" who play violas da gamba, at the Friends of Vienna concert, this Sunday, October 14th, at 3:30 at the Unity Church, 1243 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo. WNED's Peter Hall found out more.
