In 2010, Viols in Our Schools & the GambaCast will host the First Internet Viola da Gamba Composer's Project which seeks composers to write new works for unaccompanied 7-string bass viol to be presented in a New Music recital performed by Phillip W. Serna at Valparaiso University in the Spring of 2010. Video and audio content will be created and owned by the composer with distribution promotional use on the GambaCast video podcast. The Project and the composer(s) could each use the content to promote the work(s).
To learn more about the Viola da Gamba Composer Project, please visit www.violsinourschools.org & www.thegambacast.org.
Please contact Dr. Serna by email: firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to submit your proposal.
