PartheniaParthenia, New York’s premiere viol consort, will present a special workshop with composer and performance artist Eleonor Sandresky on Wednesday, April 24 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at LeFrak Auditorium on the campus of Queens College, 65-30 Kissena Blvd. in Flushing, New York.

Join Parthenia for a fascinating public workshop and watch a new commission for the ensemble by Eleonor Sandresky take shape. The audience will observe a first reading of the work-in-progress for four viols and baroque harp, which will ultimately be comprised of six movements. Each movement is based on recordings of the performers reading poetry of John Donne. In this workshop, the players will work with the composer to incorporate exaggerated, choreographed movement as part of playing the music, expanding the emotional meaning and intent of the music through movement.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 718-997-3800 or visit
