Viola d' Amore with Matthew Dane

Virginia Martin Howard Lecture Series

Tuesday, September 26 @ 7pm

Watkins Lecture Hall
Earle V. Moore Bldg

1100 Baits Dr

Ann Arbor, MI

 

"The viola d’amore is an instrument that has long fascinated me. The viola d’amore is at once familiar & alien: familiar in that it is played with a Baroque or modern bow & has strings of roughly the same length as my viola, alien in its number of playing strings (7), tuning, and sound palette."
