Similar-looking, but from two different families, the cello and the viol coexisted for centuries side-by-side - cousins locked in a bitter popularity contest that only one could win. Explore the history, construction, and repertoire of these two bowed stringed instruments, and hear them both in action! This event has limited seating due to social distancing. Please arrive early to secure a seat.
