    Voilà, viola! (The devil made me do it.)

    Mozart's favorite, today reduced to the butt of viola jokes...

    Seriously, Christophe, it's a beautiful work of art. Be proud, be very proud.

    Thanks Marv !
    Yes ! the viola has always been the favorite target in the orchestra ... a good reason probably for me to make one

    (I really like this one : )
    How do you keep your violin from getting stolen?
    Put it in a viola case.
    Cheers !

    Violas aren't the only instruments in the orchestra to be the butt of jokes.

    My grand-daughter is learning to play the oboe. I told her it was a religious instrument because, when you blow into it, only god knows what will come out of it.

    Q: What do an oboe and a lawsuit have in common?
    A: Everyone is relieved when the case is closed.

    I was wondering where you put this when I saw your e-blast the other day. Beautiful instrument and an amazing amount of work and time! Like Marv said, be very proud...Indeed!

    I always thought Violas were just tenor violins that grew up....seriously you guys crack me up with the jokes.

    Thanks for posting here Christophe and the great write up and pics on your site!! Always in amazement at what you bring forward. ~PJ
