Wendy Gillespie (viol)

Wendy Gillespie, treble viol, was born in New York and, after attending Wellesley College and the Amsterdam Conservatoire, began her performing career with the New York Pro Musica Antiqua. Since then she has played all over the world with leading ensembles including Les Filles de Sainte-Colombe, the Ensemble for Early Music, Ensemble Sequentia, the Waverly Consort and the English Concert. She has participated in over 80 recordings for Virgin Classics, Decca, Nonesuch and Harmonia Mundi among others. Whilst her specialty lies in consort music, Gillespie has participated in many performances of both medieval and contemporary music. Gillespie was a founding member of the viol consort Fretwork, and appeared with them worldwide, having won both a Grand Prix du Disque and a Gramophone Award. President of the Viola da Gamba Society of America, she is also Professor at Indiana University at the Early Music Institute.
