The last time I saw her, I was leaving her along the back of my wall. Only now do I realize how poetic the placement was; the viola, wallflower instrument.
A pretty typical response that I get when I first make mention of my viola might follow the lines of, "what's a viola?"
Allow me to enlighten you.
Basically, a violin on steroids. I like this video because it shows off a bit of the range. We can go lower than a violin. And we're way bigger so we can smash your violin into the ground.
But most people have never heard of us. No, it's fine. We're just the ones that make the rest of the orchestra sound good. Whatever.
Can't wait to see my baby next week. Forgive me, Viola?
