Eliza Thomason plays Wild Purple by Joan Tower in the Texas Public Radio mail room.

Viola is the middle voice of the string family and is often considered more mellow than the violin. At Texas Lutheran University, Eliza Thomason leads the string department, teaching strings and conducting the student orchestra. This Sunday she'll be joined by Dr. Eric Daub in music by Bach, Schumann, Joan Tower and Rebecca Clarke.
