Read about the viol (or viola da gamba)




We are a group of musicians in the New Haven area who are dedicated to presenting imaginative and entertaining programs of early music. The core of our group is a viol consort, but we frequently collaborate with singers and other instrumentalists. With more than 10 years of public performances, Elm City Consort has developed a loyal and enthusiastic following among music lovers in New Haven and beyond.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion


Elm City Consort believes that everyone's voice is important. We are committed to engaging performers who reflect the rich diversity of our community and to making our music available to a wide audience. Over the past five years, 30% of our artists' fees have gone to musicians from groups historically underrepresented in classical and early music.
