Event description

Description

In a program spanning from the baroque era to the present, Colette Abel explores the evolution and revolution of the viola and viola d’amore through the music of Vivaldi, Schubert, Paganini, and Richard Auldon Clark.

Enjoy an afternoon of classical music performed by Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra violist Colette Abel. As a special treat, Colette will not only play the viola but also the viola d’amore–an historical instrument rarely heard! With fourteen strings and pegs, along with a carved head scroll, the viola d’amore enjoyed tremendous popularity in the baroque and early classical eras before falling out of use. “A Violist’s Trousseau” will highlight the evolution of the viola as an instrument and demonstrate the revolutionary potential of the viola for creative expression.

PRESENTED BY
Musician Colette Abel, Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Butler University Jordan College of Arts, Encore Orchestral Strings, and Indianapolis Violins.
