Welcome to the homepage of the Glasgow Viol Consort; a recently established group of viol enthusiasts who meet weekly to explore the vast range of music written for groups of viols and further develop our individual abilities.
We have been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the leading professionals in the field and have received individual lessons and group coaching from the likes of Alison Crum (viol tutor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, president of the Viola da Gamba Society of Great Britain), Bill Hunt (professional musician and viol player with the Fretwork consort) and Alison McGillivray (professional musician and viol teacher at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).
The Glasgow Viol Consort recently established themselves as an unincorporated society to allow members to benefit from a wider range of funding sources and performance opportunities.
Please browse through the website to find out more about us and get in touch if you'd like to find out more about us or arrange to try out a viol with a view to becoming involved.
