The Tuesday Evening Group

If you're interested in playing early music with others in an informal setting, a group meets on Tuesday evenings throughout the year. Our goals are to improve our skills and have fun playing the music.

Come when you can; you don't need to commit to regular attendance. We've had people, ranging from beginners to professionals with viols, rebec, cornetto, viola, violin, and voice and welcome more as well. E-mail for more information.
