No, it's not a violin or a cello... it's even better - it's a viola! Perfect for classical music or contemporary pop, folk, or jazz music, viola players are most always versatile and can play many different genres. Violas are a tad lower in pitch than the violin, but they still have the same beauty we all know and love about string instruments. Whether you're needing a violist to round out your string quartet, or if you'd like to have a solo viola musician to stroll around at the office Christmas party... playing solo or in a ensemble, these viola musicians will add the perfect touch of class that you're looking for.
The viola is similar in material and construction to the violin but is a bit larger in size. Classical viola players are hired to play as solo artists, in string quartets, duos or trios, and in symphony orchestras. In folk music, the terms fiddle and fiddler are used to describe viola players. The viola is sometimes used in contemporary popular music, as well. From wedding ceremonies to strolling viola players for restaurants, hiring a violist is a terrific choice for many entertainment needs. All you need to do to get that soothing sound at your event is take a few minutes to watch videos, listen to audio, check out photo galleries, read reviews, and contact different violin players to ensure you book the perfect entertainment for your upcoming event.
