Meet the Instrument: Viola
Meet the viola with Seattle Symphony Viola Olivia Chew as she shares details about the viola and its role in the orchestra. In the Meet the Instrument series, we'll learn more about each instrument in turn from different players in the Seattle Symphony. From playing their first note through advanced techniques, our musicians share unique stories and fun performances to inspire you on your own musical journey. PLUS: Extend your classroom experience! Join us virtually for activities featuring crafts, instrument exploration and concert activities. Teacher Activity Guides aligned with state standards are available. The Seattle Symphony’s full range of educational program offerings share musical exploration with younger viewers and their families.
