“Follow That Fiddle!” takes you on a journey back to the origins of the violin & fiddles of the world and forward to the electric violins of tomorrow. NSO violinist Glenn Donnellan enthralls the audience with American fiddling, European fiddling (including the visually stunning Norwegian Hardanger fiddle) and the Chinese two-stringed fiddle (Erhu) as you learn about the globe-spanning history of fiddling and the violin. The performance culminates with Glenn Donnellan’s one-of-a-kind fiddle, the Electric Slugger®, which he created from a regulation Louisville Slugger™ baseball bat and plays at MLB games. This engaging performance captivates students as they learn about how a violin and fiddle make their sound, watch a bow and arrow become an instrument, and how with a little electric energy, a violin can ROCK the house!
In addition to the performance, children will have the opportunity to play the Electric Slugger® during a hands-on demonstration after each performance.
