‘Arcadia Viols,’ a consort of viols, has been associated with Arcadia Players of Western Massachusetts since its founding in 2009. The ensemble has performed around New England, mostly in private venues; in 2011, the consort performed at the BEMF Fringe Festival. Its members are active performers in other ensembles as well, performing Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music with groups such as the Folger Consort, the Carthage Consort, Washington Bach Consort and many others. As well as being active free-lancers, Arcadia Viols members are also teachers and are variously on the faculties of the Five Colleges of Western Mass, Tufts University, and the Longy School of Music.
