Beginning in the summer and fall of 2017 Josh Lee will launch The Free Viol Residency, a tuition-free opportunity study the solo repertoire of the viola da gamba with one of North America's leading performers of the instrument. 

  • The Free Viol Residency is intended for established and emerging performers, current college and conservatory students, as well as very serious amateurs dedicated to the study and performance of solo music for viola da gamba
  • The Free Viol Residency will be hosted at Josh Lee's home in Jacksonville, Florida. Each participant will schedule their residency, and determine the length of each residency in agreement with Josh.  
  • The Free Viol Residency is totally tuition-free. The only cost to participants will be the expense of traveling to and from Jacksonville, FL.
