Judy Tarling GEMS presents Judy Tarling
Wednesday, November 14
Private reception/lecture at 8 pm

Thursday, November 15
Lecture at Juilliard at 10 am

British performer, lecturer, and scholar Judy Tarling (L.R.A.M., Hon. A.R.A.M.) is one of the most respected figures in today's early music universe.  She was principal viola in the pioneering Hanover Band for 20 years, has written two classic books on historical performance and rhetoric, and has lectured, performed, and taught extensively.  

Her lecture at Juilliard two years ago was attended by many of the City's foremost performers and teachers of music and drama, several of whom brought along their well-thumbed copy of Judy's book, The Weapons of Rhetoric: a guide for musicians and audiences, for signing by the author.GEM_5th_logo_parchment_background (72dpi_cropped_1.5in) 2
