Thursday, July 25 — Instrumental Altos: The Viola and English Horn
Some of the most beautiful solos ever written are scored for these two soulful and melancholy sounding instruments. The session will explore their roles in the symphony orchestra, include chamber music and concerto excerpts, and look back at their ancestral cousins – the viola d’amore and oboe da caccia.
