Laura Vaughan's speciality is the Viola da Gamba. A Viol looks very similar to a cello, however, it has 6 strings like a guitar and not 4. The frets are not permanently set and are therefore movable, the Viols are also held and tuned differently than cellos.
Ms Vaughan records regularly for ABC Classic FM and is passionate about the Viol. She also appears regularly with ensembles such as Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, La Compaņia, Pinchgut Opera, Ironwood, Astra, Adelaide Baroque, Song Company and Opera Australia.
This recital is a part of the Peninsula Summer Music Festival, an entire week of musical performances at varied venues across the stunning Peninsula accompanied by the finest food and wine. From 3rd - 9th January 2012.
