Welcome to the homepage of the Glasgow Viol Consort. We are a society of viol enthusiasts who meet weekly to explore the vast range of music written for groups of viols while further developing our individual viol-playing 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 sessions from the likes of Alison Crum (The Rose Consort of Viols, teacher of the viol at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance), Bill Hunt (Fretwork), Alison McGillivray (Concerto Caledonia, teacher of the viol at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) and Ali Kinder (Chelys Consort of Viols).
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 support us or get involved.
