Arnie Tanimoto, Director

Our consort of alto, treble, tenor, and bass viols plays music spanning the 16th and 17th centuries, including contrapuntal fantasies, pieces based on vocal models, and dances.

Level: intermediate/advanced. Students wishing to learn the viol as beginners should request individual lessons from Arnie Tanimoto and may join the consort in future semesters.

Playing viola da gamba was such a highlight of my time at Princeton, and viol is a wonderful instrument to pick up for the first time at any age! (Molly Herron, ’21)
