Paragraph about the ensemble: 
Praised for its “warm, full sound” (The New Yorker’s Alex Ross) and hailed as a “new ensemble to watch for” (New York’s Gotham Early Music Scene), Sonnambula Viol Consort was featured at the Amherst Early Music Festival in July 2013. The ensemble has performed at Alice Tully Hall, on historic instruments at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, at Columbia University, and at numerous other venues throughout the Northeast. Founded in 2011 by Elizabeth Weinfield, the group was selected by Early Music America for inclusion on the EMA Touring Ensembles roster, and continues its mission of bringing to light unknown music for large consorts and commissioning new work for viols. The name Sonnambula is a reference to the Fantasia, a contrapuntal form favored by Renaissance composers, and a pun on the fantastical, or dream-like, state this music elicits.
