VdGS 3rd Coast – Special Benefit Concert: The Nymphs of the Rhine

Thanks to the Viola da Gamba Society of America (VdGSA)’s Consort Loan Program, Phillip Serna partnered with Naperville North High School orchestra director Dana Green to start a viol consort program in Chicago’s western suburbs. In an effort to engage the community, raise awareness about our work, the VdGS 3rd Coast held a benefit concert to raise money to purchase viols once the loan period is exhausted. The Viola da Gamba Society 3rd Coast (VdGS Third Coast), New Comma Baroque’s Phillip Serna, the Naperville North High School Department of Music, and Grounds for Hope Cafe at Trinity Lutheran Church presented a showcase attracting top viol players from across the Midwest – and indeed the country – to marathon Schenck’s complete Nymphs of the Rhine.

Performers: Mary Anne Ballard (Baltimore Consort, Galileo’s Daughters, et al), Russell Bookout, James Lambert (Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Catacoustic Consort), Eric Miller (Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble), Gail Ann Schroeder (Baroque and Beyond, Columbia Baroque, et al), & Phillip Serna (New Comma Baroque, Black Tulip, et al), bass viols
