The Department of Musical Instruments welcomes viol consort Sonnambula, which returns to the Met with a program of sixteenth-century music performed on viols from the Museum's collection of historic instruments. Featuring Elizabeth Weinfield, Amy Domingues, and Shirley Hunt, viols; Jude Ziliak, violin; and James Kennerley, tenor, this concert will take place in the Robert Lehman Court. A brief tour of The André Mertens Galleries for Musical Instruments immediately follows the concert.

Learn more about the delicate beauty of the viola da gamba on the Department of Musical Instruments' blog, Of Note.
