The Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas continues to deliver top-notch family entertainment with “Follow That Fiddle!” featuring, violinist Glenn Donnellan, with two performances at the Hylton Center’s Gregory Family Theater Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
This concert takes audiences of all ages on a journey through time to the origins of the world’s violins and fiddles and forward to the electric violins of tomorrow. The performance culminates with Donnellan’s one-of-a-kind fiddle, the Electric Slugger®, which he created from a regulation Louisville Slugger™ baseball bat to perform at Major League Baseball games. This engaging performance will captivate youngsters as they learn how a violin and fiddle make their sounds, watch a bow and arrow become an instrument and learn how with a little energy, a violin can rock the house! The performance will also feature a hands-on-demonstration.
