The Tenor Viol Project

Sunday, March 17, 2019, 3:00pm

Church of the Advent, 2366 Kemper Lane, Walnut Hills (Cincinnati), OH

 The tenor viol is roughly equivalent to the modern viola, providing the rich harmonic centers of consort music. And, like the viola, very little solo music was composed for it. But what happens when the ultimate team player steps out into the spotlight? Catacoustic has undertaken a project to make this neglected repertoire available to the large international viol community, who has been clamoring for it. We are preparing a CD recording, free downloadable music performing editions, and an instructional video. The media will be on display tonight, but it’s the music that will really shine when the supporting actor takes center stage.

Young Artists Concert

Free Event!

April 2019, Details to be announced

Christ Church Cathedral, 318 E. 4th Street, Downtown Cincinnati

 Catacoustic’s Young Artists will have spent an intense year of training and preparation, culminating in an exciting concert.

Lost & Found

Saturday, May 18, 2019, 7:30pm

Christ Church Cathedral, 318 E. 4th Street, Downtown Cincinnati

The music world was jubilant when scholars recently discovered a lost set of Fantasias by the beloved Georg Philipp Telemann. For their first performance in the Midwest, Catacoustic is assembling three bass viol players to explore a variety of interpretations of these masterpieces. And for even more contrast we’re mixing in some of the most popular viol solos by a friend of Telemann, J.S. Bach. Featuring Joanna Blendulf, Gail Ann Schroeder, and Annalisa Pappano, with Michael Unger on harpsichord.
