Instrument : Strings

Strings Cellos, fiddles, violas, violins, double bass… from fire in the kitchen to the Junos, from the Voyageur Trading Post to the Vienna Opera House, and from Centennial Concert Hall to Carnegie Hall — strings are part of every venue and every kind of music. Find the instructor or the ensemble that fits your style and your dreams.
DID YOU KNOW? The ancient Greeks plucked them (lyre), but it was the equestrian cultures — Turks, Mongolians — that may have developed the first bowed instruments. The oldest 4 string-violin is dated at 1555. And although the Stradivari called “Lady Blunt” was sold at auction for $15.9 million in June of 2011, the pleasure of these instruments is beyond price.
