Monday, July 27th, 7:30PM - Newberry Consort Presents Queen Elizabeth (1912)
 
From the Newberry Consort's website - Enjoy a concert of English viol consort music with the 1912 silent movie classic Queen Elizabeth, to which the Newberry Consort will provide the music. Starring an aging but peppy Sarah Bernhardt, this film is shot mostly from afar, as she poses and flings her arms about and seemingly overacts. But watch Bernhardt's face, strain to hear her absent voice, and you can see what a powerhouse she must have been on stage. She herself claimed to be pleased with the result, crying: "I am immortal! I am a film!"
 
Tuesday, July 28th, 5:00PM (Mini-Concert) - Quaver

Thursday, July 30th, 5:00PM (Mini-Concert) Leo Traynor Composition Competition Losers
 
See below for information on the Leo Traynor competition
 
Thursday, July 30th, 7:30PM (Full Concert) Leo Traynor Composition Competition Winners
 
From vdgsa.org - Winning compositions from the Ninth International Leo M. Traynor Composition Competition for new music for viols will be performed at this year's Conclave on Thursday evening. The goal of the competition is to stimulate development of a contemporary literature for our instrument and thus continue its tradition in modern society. Compositions must be accessible to experienced amateur viol players with the hope that the music will frequently be played. The Traynor composition competition is made possible in part through the generosity of the Viola da Gamba Society of Japan.
 
Friday, July 31st, 5:00PM (Mini-Concert) - VdGSA Consort Cooperative 2009
 
From vdgsa.org - The Consort Cooperative is an intensive, peer-directed program for pre-professional and professional viol players that runs concurrently with Conclave. CC participants hone their directing skills as they explore both traditional and unusual consort repertoire in peer-coached consorts. Participants in CC'09 will perform an afternoon mini-concert as well as winning compositions of the Traynor Competition alongside Conclave faculty.
