Welcome to  

The mission of Cascadia Viols is to encourage the appreciation, study, and performance of the Viola da Gamba and related music in Oregon and SW Washington.
We sponsor workshops, concerts, play days, and other events promoting all sizes of viols. Everyone is invited to join: beginners, accomplished amateurs, professionals, teachers, composers and people who enjoy listening to the large repertoire of the viol.


The wrist should always be coordinated with the arm, for he who plays with only one or the other, as many do, will never accomplish anything worthwhile.
