About Contact & Music Contact & Music is a group of four people, Leonoor (49), Marthe (33), Jeannette (53) and Erik (34), who live together, since november 2006. We all play viol (viola da gamba) and lute. Leonoor, a violinist, first learned herself playing the viol and the lute, and then she taught the other three. We play viol consort and lutequartet. We play the music by heart. We are working together the whole week. It’s important for us to search for a social way of living and to cooperate well. We experienced that a good contact is necessary for playing music and is always important in everybody’s life. We try to find a way of living by stimulating and helping to develop each other. We try to make a living of Contact and music by playing in nursing homes, residential homes for the elderly, homes for disabled people, in schools and in other places where there is a need for contact and music.

Based in the Chicago area, Dr. Serna works to bring the early western string instrument family known as the viola da gamba into many area schools – demonstrating solo literature from the Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical periods for treble viol, tenor viol, bass viol & violone. Please help us make viols accessible to both young and old.
