Learn more about the Walton Viola Concerto

In January 2018, we’ll play the magnificent Viola Concerto, written in 1929 by William Walton. Our soloist is Steven Ansell of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I’m always thrilled to discover new music that I’ve never played before. I think you, as audience, will be thrilled too.
