Is It a Fiddle or a Violin?

“Is It a Fiddle or a Violin?” is an educational program for students in grades K-5, presented in partnership with the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. School groups go on guided tours of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The program includes a live, interactive performance where professional musicians compare and contrast the fiddle and the violin.

This beloved program has been offered for over ten years and has been renewed and updated to engage a new generation of students!

This program is now virtual! Our Fall dates include virtual sessions with the complete musician presentation and guided tour highlights.
