ABC Wednesday: The Letter V

Viola





This viola is in the musical instrument collection of the Museum of Fine Arts. Earlier this week when I went to the museum I wandered into this gallery and immediately thought—ah, something for the letter V.

The viola is the only original member of the violin family to exist continuously in the same size.

  2. Beautiful in it's silence, more beautiful in the hands of a master!

    I played the violin for several years as a youngster... I should have stayed with it!
