Rogue Valley Symphony Debuts New Viola Work

Malek Jandali composed the viola concerto debuting with the Rogue Valley Symphony.

Everyone who goes to the symphony notices the violins and the cellos.  But do the violas get any respect? 

They will this weekend (October 19-21), when the Rogue Valley Symphony presents one of its "Masterworks" concerts, this one featuring a brand-new viola concerto by Malek Jandali

We hear more about the work, from the composer.  And Martin Majkut, the conductor, visits once again.
