Alison Kinder (Viols, Recorders, Alto)

Alison read music at Oxford and was then given a scholarship by Trinity College of Music where she studied viol with Alison Crum, being awarded the college’s Silver Medal for Early Music Studies. She plays with Chelys consort of viols, who are currently working on a recording of Dowland with Dame Emma Kirkby, and has a particular interest in Renaissance viols (early viols made with no soundpost) with The Intrepid Academy, who specialise in music of the Italian Renaissance. Alison plays viols, recorders, crumhorns, (and occasionally bagpipes!) with Philomel, whilst occasionally venturing as late as the 18th Century with various Baroque groups. A keen teacher of both adults and children, she is a tutor on several Early Music courses and conducts playing days for Early Music Fora, a recent highlight being a day of ever expanding Gabrieli, culminating in a piece for five choirs written in twenty-two parts!
