One of the most important instruments in the orchestra. Plays in the C Clef offering a bridge between the Bass and Treble Clef. It's the glue that holds the orchestra together as switching between the melody and harmony of the composition as order of making sure the orchestra stays together.

The viola, slightly larger than the violin offers deep and rich sound audible from the rest of the music that is currently being played. Thus making a small viola section still powerful. Though having a larger viola section could help balance out the ocean of violinists taking up half the stage.

Many jokes are centered around the Viola since it appears to be a lesser instrument, but this is because most of those jokes use the insert instrument here parts which usually the viola name goes in there.

An undeservedly ignored symphony orchestra instrument, larger than a violin but smaller than a cello. You read the music in the alto clef, but occasionally the music can go up into treble clef range. Has a warm, velvety kind of tonal quality.
Hector Berlioz's "Harold in Italy" is a concerto for viola and symphony orchestra.
