About the Event

Almost everyone has spent more time listening to music from a violin than that from a viola. What are the similarities and differences in the two instruments? How do each play an important role in the quality of the orchestral sound as a whole? Join violist Karen Bea, who will engage us in conversation about this lesser-known stringed instrument. 

Program Details

“Sheltering in place” just got more creative! Scottsdale Arts’ Memory Lounge program brings professional artists and creative activities to you, twice each month, during the pandemic. It is a program for people living with dementia and their care partners, and it is also a creative aging program open to others interested in joining in!

Join us on third Fridays for our new music series, In the Spotlight: Finally! In each session you will meet a member of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, who will tell us about their instruments, play for us, and let us know why they chose them even though they rarely have any solo parts! We will meet Douglas Brown, bassoonist; Karen Bea, violist; and Kevin Bock, tubaist. These workshops are free.
