Since its founding in 1972, THE NEW YORK CONSORT OF VIOLS has championed the beauty and breadth of music written expressly for the viol. Their touring program, The Road from Valencia with guest narrator John Genke, follows the path of Sephardic musicians who, expelled from Spain in 1492, fled to Italy before being recruited for the English court.

GEMS is a non-profit corporation that supports and promotes the artists and organizations in New York devoted to early music— the music of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and early Classical periods.
