Marine Chamber Orchestra Bratsche

GySgt Karen Johnson, coordinator

You won’t find a director on the podium at this conductorless concert. Instead you’ll find the viola, or “Bratsche” as it is known in German, taking the lead. Viola-centric pieces by German composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Max Bruch anchor the performance, featuring the rich tones of lower string instruments in Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 and a viola solo in Bruch’s Romanze. Contemporary works by Jessica Meyer and Sir William Walton reflect the full capabilites of the whole string family.
